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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Nossa Senhora da Paz and Igreja do Santo Cristo. Step out of the city life by going to Caldeira das Sete Cidades and Lagoa do Fogo. When in Ponta Delgada, make a side trip to see Poca Da Dona Beija in Furnas, approximately Furnas away. There's much more to do: get great views at Boca do Inferno Viewpoint, explore the activities along Furnas, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Praia de Santa Barbara.
