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.
Get outdoors at Caldeira das Sete Cidades and Praia de Santa Barbara. Explore Ponta Delgada's surroundings by going to Furnas (Parque Terra Nostra & Poca Da Dona Beija). There's much more to do: explore the activities along Lagoa do Fogo, pause for some serene contemplation at Igreja Matriz de Sao Sebastiao, see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour, and identify plant and animal life at Caldeira Velha Environmental Interpretation Centre.
