Have you ever been to Ponta Delgada?

Ponta Delgada began as a simple fishing village whose fishermen were once attracted by its safe coves, but soon began to play the role of main port of the São Miguel Island.

The city grew and in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries the convents, churches and manor houses flourished and still today they integrate the historic centre.

Ponta Delgada is today a cosmopolitan city, outward looking, with a lively economic and cultural life. The extensive coastline road, which borders the harbour and the sea outlining the city, is the expression of its dynamism, adapting to new times and also the access road to the city.

Boasting a history of over five centuries and precious testimonies of the past, Ponta Delgada is a multifaceted city where tradition lives hand-in-hand with the present and cosmopolitanism with wholesome tranquility of the Azorean life.

What People Are Saying

★★★★★
"The tour was very nice - although the weather was not good. I have seen all the attractions."
★★★★★
"We booked this excursion and the first day was so good we immediately booked a second day of Jeep touring through this company. Alice was very helpful in booking our tours and Telmo was a miraculous guide. Telmo has lived on Sao Miguel for his whole life and clearly has great knowledge of the towns, history, culture, geography and botany. He constantly adjusted the plan to suit our wishes and to try to manage the variable weather and never hesitated to take photos of my wife and I for us. We had the pleasure of dining with Telmo at two fabulous restaurants that seemed infrequently found by the tourists. Overall, he took us to numerous amazing places we would never have found on our own. We are truly so grateful that he made our trip to the Azores as magical as it could be!"
★★★★★

"We toured with Sabrina and had such a wonderful day!! We ate Cozido das Furnas (the stew cooked in the earth), swam in the hot springs, shared stories, drank tea, and had a blast. This trip felt like touring with a friend rather than a guide."
