Campo de São Francisco
Gardens, Parks and Forests
Situated opposite the former Franciscan convent, Campo de São Francisco is one of the oldest public parks in the city, having been created in the 19th century.
It is one of the most popular night spots in Ponta Delgada, especially during the summer months, when a number of concerts are held in the park. The bandstand provides a perfect stage in the centre of this space.
During the Festas do Senhor Santo Cristo (Festival of Our Lord of the Miracles), Campo de São Francisco becomes a major venue in the city's cultural programme, and the park is filled with light, music and colour.
