Ponta Delgada, the capital of the Azores archipelago, lies on the south coast of the Sao Miguel Island. This scenic town boasts ancient monuments, including the imposing three-arched city gates in the Praça de Gonçalo Velho and the Gothic-style Church of St. Sebastian. The 16th-century fort and the Carlos Machado Museum that documents Azorean natural history and culture also offer a fascinating view of the region’s history. Walk along narrow cobblestone lanes to get a feel of the town’s past, captured in its architecture. For the best photo opportunities, head to the breathtaking Lagoa das Sete Cidades – a twin lake in a volcanic caldera, its steep banks rich with ferns and wildflowers. The leafy Praca 5 Outubro square and the Antonio Borges Garden are lovely spots to relax in the evenings
