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 Igreja do Santo Cristo and Nossa Senhora da Paz. Get in touch with nature at Praia de Santa Barbara and Caldeira das Sete Cidades. Venture out of the city with trips to Furnas (Parque Terra Nostra, Pico do Ferro Viewpoint, &more). And it doesn't end there: get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour, explore the activities along Furnas, get great views at Miradouro de Santa Iria, and identify plant and animal life at Caldeira Velha Environmental Interpretation Centre.

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.

There's still lots to do: take in the views from Ponte de Dom Luis I, enjoy the sand and surf at Praia do Carneiro, wander the streets of Rua Santa Catarina, and admire the masterpieces at Museu Serralves.
