Santa Cruz de Tenerife is the shared capital of the Canary Islands, together with Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. The central square Plaza de España is a real eye-catcher, situated between the ocean and the old, bustling city centre. Lose yourself in the crowded alleys, find a spot on one of the terraces, or leave town and discover the rugged volcanic landscape. The museum of Nature and Man is worth a visit. Chances are you’ll find pilot whales in the waters around Tenerife, so keep an eye out!
Ponta Delgada is the capital of the Azores - a Portuguese archipelago in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. It's located on the São Miguel Island. The city dates back to the 15th century, when a fishing village was first established in the area. The beautiful architecture makes Ponta Delgada a charming place to walk through. Spend some time discovering the City Gates and the City Hall, before relaxing in the Campo de São Francisco square. Don't miss the magnificent botanical garden!
