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.
Get some historical perspective at Nossa Senhora da Paz and Igreja do Santo Cristo. Take a break from the city and head to Caldeira das Sete Cidades and Poca Da Dona Beija. Get out of town with these interesting Ponta Delgada side-trips: Furnas (Parque Terra Nostra & Centro de Monitorizacao e Investigacao das Furnas) and Oficina - Museu (in Capelas). There's still lots to do: explore the activities along Lagoa do Fogo, contemplate the geological forces at Lagoa das Furnas, identify plant and animal life at Caldeira Velha Environmental Interpretation Centre, and make a trip to Portas da Cidade.

To see maps, traveler tips, ratings, and tourist information, read our Ponta Delgada travel itinerary planner.

Expect a daytime high around 19°C in February, and nighttime lows around 14°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 11th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
