Ponta Delgada, Sao Miguel

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 Praia de Santa Barbara and Lagoa do Fogo will get you outdoors. Do some cultural sightseeing at Igreja do Santo Cristo and Igreja Matriz de Sao Sebastiao. Get out of town with these interesting Ponta Delgada side-trips: Furnas (Terra Nostra Gardens, Poca Da Dona Beija, & more). There's much more to do: get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour, see what you can catch with a fishing tour, take in the dramatic natural features at Caldeira das Sete Cidades, and delve into the lush surroundings at Lagoa das Furnas.
