  • In the Church of the adjacent Nunnery "Convento da Esperança" worshipped the most famous statue of the Azores (Senhor Santo Cristo dos Milagres), which in 17th and 18th century sparked a cult which spread over the whole island of Sao Miguel. The faithful are praying before the grid that keeps the visitors at a distance. My Tip: You should not disturb the prayers of several minutes by shooting (or even loud talking), but shooting wait for a favorable moment. On a long series of Azulejos on the wall, the way of life of the nun is represented "Teresa..." which significantly contributed to the spread of the cult and introduced a Clerkenwell in honour of the Saint. The Byzantine-looking statue to have cured believers of diseases and to be protected from strokes of fate.

Where to stay in Ponta Delgada

As the island of Sao Miguel's primary tourist hotspot and center of activity, Ponta Delgada boasts perhaps the widest array of the lodging options in the Azores. Check into one of the luxury hotels in the core, closer to the ocean, to treat yourself to swimming pools, spa facilities, and a host of other amenities. Alternatively, try a smaller guesthouse or private villa slighty farther from the sea to save a bit on costs while still keeping yourself within reach of the area's churches, museums, and coastal fortress. The city itself is relatively compact, so most of the hotels in and around the city center provide easy access to its historical sites and tourist attractions by foot.
