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.
Visit Farol Ponta do Arnel and Igreja do Santo Cristo for their historical value. Discover out-of-the-way places like Shark Diving and Salto do Prego. Change things up with these side-trips from Ponta Delgada: Furnas (Furnas Research and Monitoring Centre, Terra Nostra Gardens, & more). There's much more to do: explore the activities along Lagoa Azul, Sao Miguel Acores, head outdoors with Jardim Jose do Canto, identify plant and animal life at Pinhal da Paz, and explore the striking landscape at Caldeira das Sete Cidades.
