Capitals of the two portuguese archipelagos

I prefer Ponta Delgada, I love the fact is has 230 rainy days per year and only 1700 hours of sun, I like cloudy days.

Ponta Delgada is very comfortable, with nice summers that are not too dry nor too sunny, unlike Funchal.

Ponta Delgada looks pretty pleasant. The cooler temperatures and low sunshine are the best features. Rainfall is decent.

Ponta Delgada is better to live.

Funchal is subject to flooding, forest fires and heatwaves.
