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've now added Igreja do Santo Cristo to your itinerary. Kick off your visit on the 17th (Sun): pause for some serene contemplation at Igreja do Santo Cristo, don't miss a visit to Portas da Cidade, then explore the activities along Lagoa do Fogo, and finally look for all kinds of wild species at Caldeira Velha Environmental Interpretation Centre.

For other places to visit, traveler tips, maps, and other tourist information, refer to the Ponta Delgada online attractions planner.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major aiports are João Paulo II Airport and Lajes Airport. Expect a daytime high around 22°C in May, and nighttime lows around 17°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 17th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
