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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Ponta Delgada: Furnas (Terra Nostra Gardens & Poca Da Dona Beija). There's still lots to do: take in the dramatic natural features at Caldeira das Sete Cidades, look for all kinds of wild species at Environmental Interpretation Centre of Caldeira Velha, explore the activities along Furnas, and see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour.

For photos, other places to visit, maps, and other tourist information, use the Ponta Delgada sightseeing planner.

If you are flying in from Luxembourg, the closest major airports are João Paulo II Airport and Lajes Airport. In April, daytime highs in Ponta Delgada are 19°C, while nighttime lows are 14°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 15th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
