Discover the city on a late evening tour and enjoy a coffee nearby... than go to the walking marina.... all these spots bring the local flavour of this clean and friendly city

We wandered around the town then started back to the ship. We came across this litle area - a 'gate' to the town, tower and statue. Just takes a few minutes to see, but interesting

The city gates, moved from another, nearby location is a symbolic structure rather than anything practical, and consists of 3 interlocked open stone and brick gateways.
Now situated on one of Ponta Delgada open squares, and therefore surrounded by traffic.
Quite honestly there is little to see, or keep you.

It's fascinating to walk around the entire downtown area if you're in Ponta Delgada. Recommend spending some time exploring and enjoying.

We spent a few hours over our last two days on the island walking or taking the little tourist train around the capital, there are some older colonial buildings around the port, this view is a lovely old square directly opposite the port.
