Full description
Meet with your tour guide at 2:00pm at the tourist office in Ponta Delgada in the city center. You will be briefed with great information about the history of Ponta Delgada, to provide you with some context to what you will be about to see.

The iconic monument of Portas da Cidade will be how you begin learning about the many facets of Ponta Delgada over the centuries. The Mother Church of Sao Sebastiao is next, which is one of the oldest and most important buildings in town. You will then ease along the picturesque cobblestone streets of the city center, while the tour guide provides great information along the way. Uncover some of the best works of art that are present in Ponta Delgada, some of which are easily missed by tourists.

You will then advance to visit the exquisitely designed botanical garden of Santana, home of many peculiar tree species. You can enter a normally inaccessible area of Igreja do Santo Cristo, and get up-close with the statue that began the largest religious procession in all of Portugal.
