Visit on foot to the centre of Ponta Delgada, with special interest in: São Francisco Square and the Church of Nossa Senhora da Esperança (Our Lady of Hope), home of the image of Senhor Santo Cristo dos Milagres (our Lord of Miracles), responsible for one of the largest religious festivities in Portugal, Conceição’s Palace exterior façade (Palace of the Presidency of the Azores Regional Government), Parish Church of São Sebastião, Portas da Cidade (city gates), Sacred Art Centre of the Carlos Machado Museum, Mercado da Graça (local market) and the Church of São Pedro.
This wonderful tour combines some off the road routes in both the highlands and flatlands, taking you to the amazing natural reserve of Lagoa do Fogo to enjoy nature at its best. Astonishing views from the top of the crater’s border are a must to photograph! We then drive you to Caldeira Velha, a warm iron-rich waterfall where you can go for a dip to experience its warm waters.
Accommodation in S. Miguel.
