As the busy capital of São Miguel, Ponta Delgada represents the most visited place on the island. Known for its historical buildings, the city offers 17th- and 18th-century convents and churches, as well as cobbled pedestrian streets and hidden squares.
You've now added Azores Connections to your itinerary. Get in touch with nature at Scuba & Snorkeling and Mosteiros Beach. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Igreja do Santo Cristo and Igreja Matriz de Sao Sebastiao. Change things up with a short trip to Piscinas Naturais in Mosteiros (about 38 minutes away). There's lots more to do: identify plant and animal life at Pinhal da Paz, head outdoors with Lagoa do Canario, get great views at Viewpoint of Black Stones, and kick back and relax at Praia de Santa Barbara.
