Found to the west of the coast of Portugal, Ponta Delgada is located on Sao Miguel Island and is the largest municipality of the Azores. The ferry routes departing the port head to neighbouring islands belonging to Portugal and are supplied by Atlanticoline.
The Azores are a symbol of beauty lying in the North Atlantic Ocean, and Ponta Delgada embodies all that is desirable about the volcanic island group. Much like many regions of a small island, Ponta Delgada exudes a natural allure that sparks a rejuvenatingly fresh and clean energy around the glorious landscape. The church at the top of the hill excites even the most ardent atheist; the architecture showcases the religious history of the island, and the views of Ponta Delgada are breathtaking from the apex of the hill. The glorious views aren’t just exclusive to the church hill, whole days can be spent exploring the stunning scenery that decorates the land.
The main town is slightly more vibrant than the surrounding hillside, though it is still a place where many come to escape from the stresses of everyday life. Modern buildings are subtly introduced amid the historical landmarks, and to embark on a thorough tour of the city centre, many companies supply a tour guide for a reasonable price.
Large travel companies offer transport to and from the region, but to get around the town there are many small mini buses in operation. The buses aren’t always necessary, and it is more than possible to comfortably stroll around most of the centre.
