Povoação is an airy town surrounded by seven hills in the south-eastern corner of São Miguel.

Its restored 15th century chapel of Santa Bárbara is thought to have been the island´s first place of worship.

10 km further east, the Miradouro da Madrugada is a spectacular cliff-top vantage point affording unparalleled views of the morning sunrise.
