Ponta Delgada ©
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.
Visit Mosteiros Beach and Praia de Santa Barbara for some beach relaxation. Get a sense of the local culture at Igreja de Sao Jose and OMIC - Observatorio Microbiano dos Acores. Venture out of the city with trips to Jose do Canto Forest Garden (in Furnas), Piscinas Naturais (in Mosteiros) and Farol Ponta do Arnel (in Nordeste). Spend the 2nd (Mon) behind the viewfinder with an inspiring photography tour. There's still lots to do: identify plant and animal life at Pinhal da Paz, get outside with Jardim Antonio Borges, explore the activities along Lagoa do Fogo, and explore the striking landscape at Caldeira das Sete Cidades.

To see maps, other places to visit, more things to do, and other tourist information, refer to the Ponta Delgada day trip planner.
