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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Nossa Senhora da Paz and Igreja do Santo Cristo. Step out of the city life by going to Caldeira das Sete Cidades and Poca Da Dona Beija. Explore Ponta Delgada's surroundings by going to Mosteiros (Piscinas Naturais & Mosteiros Beach). There's much more to do: kick back and relax at Praia de Santa Barbara, see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour, explore the activities along Lagoa do Fogo, and identify plant and animal life at Caldeira Velha Environmental Interpretation Centre.
