On the gorgeous, green island of Sao Miguel - the largest in the Azores archipelago - you’ll find the winding streets and sleepy coves of Ponta Delgada. Once a peaceful fishing village, Ponta Delgada has evolved into the bustling capital of the nine islands. With magnificent 16th-century Azorean architecture – from the white-walled Fort of Sao Bras to the ornate Sao Sebastiao Church – wandering through its streets is a journey through this archipelago’s past. Admire the buildings in the historic centre, discover the richness of its blossoming botanical gardens, or take an evening stroll along the marina.
To top it all off, visit the Carlos Machado Museum to explore the arts and traditions of the Azores. As the capital of the ‘Hawaii of Europe’, Ponta Delgada holidays offer a fabulous fusion of history, culture and nature that is hard to top.
