  • The monuments are rare on the island, so do not miss it with its white and black soil. It allows to enter the city center in front of a beautiful church.

  • It's an historic monument set near the waterfront that would have been imposing to those arriving at the time. It's no less imposing now and although not a lot to see makes a nice photograph.
  • Beautiful representation of the city's style. The same style is found around all the city
  • A tourist attraction you won't want to miss. Good photo-op
  • Whoever cross the gate would like to stay or come back to Ponta Delgada, they say ;) Nice place, also with cute light during the night.
  • Iconic place in Ponta Delgada. You can see vulcanic stone used in building facades

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.
