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.
Step out of the city life by going to Caldeira das Sete Cidades and Poca Da Dona Beija. Take a break from Ponta Delgada with a short trip to Parque Terra Nostra in Furnas, about 46 minutes away. There's lots more to do: explore the activities along Lagoa do Fogo, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Igreja Matriz de Sao Sebastiao, enjoy the sand and surf at Praia de Santa Barbara, and get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour.
