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.
Get some historical perspective at Igreja do Santo Cristo and Nossa Senhora da Paz. Step out of Ponta Delgada with an excursion to Poca Da Dona Beija in Furnas--about 50 minutes away. There's lots more to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Caldeira Velha Environmental Interpretation Centre, cruise around with ANC Azores Holidays.pt, explore the activities along Lagoa do Fogo, and take an in-depth tour of Maria dos Anjos Melo House Museum.

For photos, reviews, other places to visit, and other tourist information, use the Ponta Delgada sightseeing planner.

Traveling by car from Nordeste to Ponta Delgada takes an hour. February in Ponta Delgada sees daily highs of 19°C and lows of 14°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 21st (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
