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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Furnas Research and Monitoring Centre and Farol Ponta do Arnel. Get in touch with nature at Praia de Santa Barbara and Swim with Dolphins. Change things up with these side-trips from Ponta Delgada: Salto do Prego (in Povoacao) and Furnas (Terra Nostra Gardens & Poca Da Dona Beija). And it doesn't end there: explore the activities along Lagoas Empadadas, take in the spiritual surroundings of Nossa Senhora da Paz, identify plant and animal life at Parque Natural da Ribeira dos Caldeiroes, and take in the dramatic natural features at Caldeira das Sete Cidades.
