Stroll through the charms of Ponta Delgada, and explore two enchanting Botanical Gardens.

Enjoy a leisurely guided walk through the centre of Ponta Delgada, a city well known for its churches. You’ll head to the celebrated Gothic-style Church of St Sebastian, which was built in 1547, and continue through the bustling streets, to visit the richly decorated 16th-century Convent and Chapel of Our Lady of Hope. Then hop onto a trolley train in the Jose Canto Botanical Garden and ride through the pleasant gardens and huge collection of trees. Afterwards, stretch your legs again in the Antonio Borges Botanical Garden, a tranquil paradise filled with native species, mysterious caves and glistening ponds.
