Next, we will head to the capital city of Ponta Delgada, where we will wander through the historic streets and capture images of charming colonial architecture. We will also visit the stunning Botanical Garden, filled with exotic flowers and plants.

Our tour will then take us to the island of Terceira, known for its rugged coastline, picturesque villages, and colorful festivals. Here, we will explore the stunning Praia da Vitoria beach, and capture images of the impressive Monte Brasil, a volcanic crater rising above the town.

We will also visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Angra do Heroismo, a charming town filled with historic architecture, colorful houses, and cobbled streets. Here, we will capture stunning images of the city’s stunning fortresses, churches, and plazas.
