Caldeira das Sete Cidades, Ponta Delgada
(4.9/5 based on 2,800+ reviews on the web)
Caldeira das Sete Cidades, an important source of fresh water for the islands, provides a subtropical oasis of green hills, dense forests, and foggy bluffs. Formed by a prehistoric volcanic eruption followed by another in 1445, the area is actually a large volcanic crater. The resulting land offers an array of flora and fauna. Take one of the trails that will lead you up to the top of the crater, where you'll observe numerous lakes, the ocean, and the quaint town within. Put Caldeira das Sete Cidades and other Ponta Delgada attractions into our Ponta Delgada vacation route planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Absolutely stunning!!!!!! The views are gorgeous. We drove right down to the twin lakes as well. Not to be missed. If you like to hike, this is also a nice spot. 
  • Amazing - We did a tour - Next time we will Hike it! Pictures do not do it justice! A Must on the list of things to do. 
  • One of my favorite sites on the entire island, it's always nice to descent to the boiler through the viewpoints and abandoned hotel. To get to the bottom of the boiler, cross the bridge and get into a parish that stopped right in time and offers sympathy and good food.
