Ponta Delgada

Ponta Delgada is a city and municipality on the island of São Miguel in the archipelago of the Azores, an autonomous region of Portugal. It includes 46,102 residents in the urban area, and approximately 20,113 inhabitants in the three central parishes that comprise the historical city: São Pedro, São Sebastião, São José. Ponta Delgada is the administrative capital of the Autonomos Region of the Azores, following the revised constitution of 1976; it is seat of the Regional Presidency (the Regional Assembly is located in Horta, Faial, while the judiciary and diocese are located in Angra do Heroísmo, Terceira).

The municipalitys climate, much like the rest of the Azores, is shaped by the Gulf Stream allowing a small variation in temperatures, with annual temperatures oscillating between 14°C and 25°C.

Much like other communities in the archipelago of the Azores, the municipality is shaped by its geography; most homes are clustered along the regional road network that circles the island, although many roads bisect the central portion of the island (along the Picos Region) along a north-south axis. Along the southern coast is the urbanized core of historic Ponta Delgada, which includes the principal civic infrastructures, principal high-capacity motorway, tourist and culture attractions, as well as the businesses and government services. Ponta Delgadas sister city in the United States is Fall River, Massachusetts.
