This is a tour in the comfort of a van, offering to know the origins of the history of São Miguel island. We are going to visit the first place to be inhabited: Povoação village. We will get to know some traditions and how the economy of the Azores evolved, at the Museum of the Wheat.

We leave Ponta Delgada and go towards Vila Franca do Campo to make the first stop next to the chapel of Nossa Senhora da Paz. There, we will talk about the history of this location, the legend of the chapel, as well as contemplate the iconic islet of Vila Franca some meters away from the coast.

Then we leave for Povoação, where we will make the next stop and visit Casa dos Moinhos. There, we will talk about the discovery of the Azores and the settlement of the island. In the first part of this tour, we will stop at the Por do Sol viewpoint and the harbor of Faial da Terra.
