Unveiling Ponta Delgada's Secrets

City Tour, Pineapple, Arts & Crafts Museum

Sao Miguel island

You will be surrendered to the historic beauty of the city center thanks to the presentation of some of its most significant landmarks, monuments, and tales which will carry you to other eras, as a time machine.

After, a pilgrimage to the pineapple greenhouses, an ancient production that can work wonders amidst a sweet, heavy air, where the pulpy, aromatic fruits slowly grow.

At last, an encounter with the 1940’s and 1950’s in these islands, at the ethnographic workshop / Capelas’ Museum: an accurate reconstitution through pieces collected along decades transports us in time and in space.
