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.
Visiting Caldeira das Sete Cidades and Furnas will get you outdoors. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Oficina - Museu and Igreja do Santo Cristo. Venture out of the city with trips to Furnas (Poca Da Dona Beija, Terra Nostra Gardens, & more). There's lots more to do: explore the activities along Lagoa do Fogo, identify plant and animal life at Environmental Interpretation Centre of Caldeira Velha, don't miss a visit to Portas da Cidade, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Nossa Senhora da Paz.

To see traveler tips, other places to visit, reviews, and more tourist information, you can read our Ponta Delgada trip generator.

You can fly from Terceira to Ponta Delgada in 2.5 hours. In February, plan for daily highs up to 19°C, and evening lows to 14°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 11th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
