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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Jose do Canto Forest Garden and Pico Carvao. Explore Ponta Delgada's surroundings by going to Furnas (Parque Terra Nostra & Poca Da Dona Beija) and Nordeste (Farol Ponta do Arnel & Miradouro da Ponta do Sossego). There's still lots to do: take in the dramatic natural features at Caldeira das Sete Cidades, explore the activities along Lagoa Azul, Sao Miguel Acores, look for all kinds of wild species at Caldeira Velha Environmental Interpretation Centre, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Igreja de Sao Jose.

To see maps, other places to visit, ratings, and more tourist information, you can read our Ponta Delgada travel route planning website.

Lisbon to Ponta Delgada is an approximately 5- hour combination of flight and bus. The time zone changes from Western European Standard Time (WET) to Azores Standard Time (AZOT), which is usually a -1 hour difference. Plan for somewhat warmer nights when traveling from Lisbon in February since evenings lows in Ponta Delgada dip to 14°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 16th (Fri) early enough to travel to Terceira.

On the 17th (Sat), examine the collection at Museu do Vinho, stop by Queijo Vaquinha, then indulge in some culinary diversions at O Forno, and finally take in the awesome beauty at Monte Brasil. Here are some ideas for day two: Head underground at Algar do Carvão - Monumento Natural Regional, appreciate the extensive heritage of Rua da Se, then contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Igreja Da Misericordia, and finally make a trip to Miradouro Do Facho.

Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Terceira fast, fun, and easy.

Traveling by combination of flight and taxi from Ponta Delgada to Terceira takes 2 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of ferry and taxi. Cap off your sightseeing on the 18th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
