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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Pico Carvao and Salto do Prego. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Ponta Delgada: Furnas (Parque Terra Nostra, Pico do Ferro Viewpoint, &more) and Nordeste (Viewpoint of Ponta da Madrugada, Miradouro da Ponta do Sossego, &more). There's lots more to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Igreja de Sao Jose, get outside with Lagoa do Canario, see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour, and explore the striking landscape at Caldeira das Sete Cidades.

To find maps, reviews, more things to do, and tourist information, refer to the Ponta Delgada travel planning site.
