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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Ponta Delgada: Sete Cidades (Sao Nicolau Church & Vista do Rei Miradouro) and Furnas (Parque Terra Nostra, Caldeiras Vulcânicas, &more). There's much more to do: take in the dramatic natural features at Caldeira das Sete Cidades, identify plant and animal life at Wildlife Areas, get great views at Boca do Inferno Viewpoint, and relax in the rural setting at Plantacoes de Cha Gorreana.

Start your trip to Ponta Delgada by creating a personalized itinerary on Inspirock.
