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.
Visiting Lagoa do Fogo and Praia de Santa Barbara will get you outdoors. Get a sense of the local culture at Centro de Monitorizacao e Investigacao das Furnas and Igreja do Santo Cristo. Venture out of the city with trips to Furnas (Parque Terra Nostra & Poca Da Dona Beija). Spend the 2nd (Thu) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Next up on the itinerary: take in the dramatic natural features at Caldeira das Sete Cidades, identify plant and animal life at Caldeira Velha Environmental Interpretation Centre, see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour, and get great views at Boca do Inferno Viewpoint.

Called "Oporto" by many, the city of Porto along the Duoro River lent the country and Port wine their names. Portugal's second-largest metropolis dates back to the 4th century, representing both a rich cultural past and industrial present through its architecture and style.
Get outdoors at Mindelo Beach and Douro River. We've included these beaches for you: Praia de Lavadores and Praia do Carneiro. And it doesn't end there: take in the views from Ponte de Dom Luis I, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Igreja da Ordem Terceira de São Francisco, steep yourself in history at Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral), and take in the waterfront activity at Cais da Ribeira.
