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.
Popular historic sites such as Farol Ponta do Arnel and Igreja de Sao Jose 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). There's still lots to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Lagoa do Fogo, tour the pleasant surroundings at Praia de Santa Barbara, look for all kinds of wild species at Caldeira Velha Environmental Interpretation Centre, and get impressive views of Lagoa das Furnas.

For where to stay, maps, ratings, and tourist information, go to the Ponta Delgada trip planning app.

Montreal, Canada to Ponta Delgada is an approximately 9- hour flight. You'll lose 4 hours traveling from Montreal to Ponta Delgada due to the time zone difference. Expect a daytime high around 24°C in June, and nighttime lows around 19°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 15th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel to Lisbon.

There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Castelo de S. Jorge, visit Alfama, admire the masterpieces at Museu Calouste Gulbenkian, and make a trip to Belém Tower.
