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.
Start off your visit on the 3rd (Fri): head outdoors with Lagoa do Congro, then pause for some serene contemplation at Igreja de Sao Jose, then get the lay of the land with Free Tour Ponta Delgada, and finally pause for some photo ops at Estatua Goncalo Velho Cabral.
