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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Lagoa das Furnas and Salto do Cabrito. Get in touch with nature at Salto do Prego and Piscinas Naturais. Change things up with these side-trips from Ponta Delgada: Furnas (Pico do Ferro Viewpoint & Centro de Monitorizacao e Investigacao das Furnas) and Mosteiros Beach (in Mosteiros). Next up on the itinerary: pause for some serene contemplation at Nossa Senhora da Paz, identify plant and animal life at Caldeira Velha Environmental Interpretation Centre, explore the striking landscape at Caldeira das Sete Cidades, and pause for some photo ops at Estatua Goncalo Velho Cabral.
