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.
Popular historic sites such as Farol Ponta do Arnel and Nossa Senhora da Paz are in your itinerary. Escape the urban bustle at Caldeira das Sete Cidades and Dolphin & Whale Watching. Explore Ponta Delgada's surroundings by going to Furnas (Parque Terra Nostra, Poca Da Dona Beija, & more) and Tabaco da Maia Museum (in Ribeira Grande). And it doesn't end there: see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, experience rural life at Arruda Pineapple Plantation, identify plant and animal life at Parque Natural da Ribeira dos Caldeiroes, and take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Pico da Vara.

Museum-lovers will get to explore Museu Calouste Gulbenkian and Carmo Archaeological Museum. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Avenida da Liberdade and Chiado. Venture out of the city with trips to Sintra (Castelo dos Mouros & Park and National Palace of Pena), Batalha Monastery (in Batalha) and Basilica de Nossa Senhora do Rosario de Fatima (in Fatima). There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Cathedral of Evora (Se Catedral de Evora), explore the world behind art at Museu Nacional do Azulejo, take in the spiritual surroundings of Templo Romano de Evora (Templo de Diana), and make a trip to Capela dos Ossos.
