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.
Nossa Senhora da Paz and Igreja de Sao Jose will appeal to history buffs. Get some cultural insight at Igreja do Santo Cristo and Igreja Matriz de Sao Sebastiao. Venture out of the city with trips to Farol Ponta do Arnel (in Nordeste), Furnas (Poca Da Dona Beija & Caldeiras da Lagoa das Furnas) and Sao Nicolau Church (in Sete Cidades). Fill the 23rd (Sat) with unforgettable perspectives with a canyoning and rapelling tour. The adventure continues: explore the striking landscape at Caldeira das Sete Cidades, look for all kinds of wild species at Environmental Interpretation Centre of Caldeira Velha, engage your brain at Priolo Environmental Center, and get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports.
