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 explore the less-touristy side of things at Boca do Inferno Viewpoint and Lagoas Empadadas. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Ponta Delgada: Furnas (Jose do Canto Forest Garden & Centro de Monitorizacao e Investigacao das Furnas) and Mosteiros (Mosteiros Beach & Piscinas Naturais). And it doesn't end there: head outdoors with Outdoor Activities, identify plant and animal life at Parque Natural da Ribeira dos Caldeiroes, pause for some serene contemplation at Igreja do Santo Cristo, and stroll through Salto do Prego.
