The heart of the island of São Miguel is an unforgettable tour. Departure from Ponta Delgada heading to the north coast of the island in order to visit the city of Ribeira Grande, on the way we will make a short stop in the parish of Ribeira seca to visit the Renaissance fountain that bears witness to times past. Arriving at Ribeira Grande city centre, we will perceive the baroque architecture of the 17th and 18th century buildings, of which we will visit the most important ones, on a short walk. A short stop to appreciate the beautiful volcanic sand beaches is also one of the highlights of this tour. On the mountain road we drive to the interior of the island and visit the thermal area of Caldeiras da Ribeira Grande, which is surrounded by vegetation. The drive continues to one of the Seven Natural Wonders of Portugal - the Lagoa do Fogo, one of the mandatory stops. The tour ends with a descent down the mountain towards the south coast.
