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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Nossa Senhora da Paz and Igreja do Santo Cristo. Get outdoors at Caldeira das Sete Cidades and Scuba & Snorkeling. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Ponta Delgada: Furnas (Poca Da Dona Beija & Parque Terra Nostra) and Mosteiros (Mosteiros Beach & Piscinas Naturais). Next up on the itinerary: stroll through Praia de Santa Barbara, look for all kinds of wild species at Caldeira Velha Environmental Interpretation Centre, pause for some serene contemplation at Igreja de Sao Jose, and contemplate the waterfront views at Lagoa do Fogo.
