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.
Visiting Praia de Santa Barbara and Caldeira das Sete Cidades will get you outdoors. You'll explore and learn at Museu Militar dos Acores and Priolo Environmental Center. Venture out of the city with trips to Sao Nicolau Church (in Sete Cidades), Mosteiros (Mosteiros Beach & Natural Pool) and Vila Franca do Campo (Igreja de Sao Miguel Arcanjo & Vila Franca Museum). Fill the 4th (Sun) with unforgettable perspectives with a canyoning and rapelling tour. There's much more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Nossa Senhora da Paz, look for all kinds of wild species at Environmental Interpretation Centre of Caldeira Velha, contemplate the waterfront views at Furnas, and pause for some serene contemplation at Igreja Matriz de Sao Sebastiao.
