Ponta Delgada ©
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.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Environmental Interpretation Centre of Caldeira Velha and Scuba & Snorkeling. Visiting Ponta da Ferraria and Lagoas Empadadas will get you outdoors. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Ponta Delgada: Salto do Prego (in Povoacao) and Terra Nostra Gardens (in Furnas). There's still lots to do: awaken your taste buds at some of the top wineries in the area, make a trip to Portas da Cidade, pause for some serene contemplation at Igreja do Santo Cristo, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Nossa Senhora da Paz.

For where to stay, traveler tips, and tourist information, you can read our Ponta Delgada custom trip planner.

Use the Route module to find suitable travel options from Coventry, USA to Ponta Delgada. You'll lose 4 hours traveling from Coventry to Ponta Delgada due to the time zone difference. Expect somewhat warmer evenings in Ponta Delgada when traveling from Coventry in September, with lows around 65°F. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 15th (Thu) to allow time for travel to Horta.
