    The Museum A Cidade do Açúcar (The City of Sugar) was established by the City Hall of Funchal and opened to the public on October 12th 1996. It is located at Columbus Square, between the streets "Rua do Sabão" and "Rua João Esmeraldo", in the city’s historic center.

    It is dedicated to the island’s sugar industry between the fifteenth and nineteenth centuries, in a period known as the "white gold cycle", one of the greatest and most notorious times of the history and culture of Madeira Island.

    The museum's collection gathers archaeological finds from the excavations carried out at the Columbus Square in 1989, where the old houses of the Flemish merchant João Esmeraldo once existed, having been demolished in 1876.

    Special reference to the sculpture, jewelry and furniture collections, a heritage that reflects the economic power offered by the sugar cycle.

    Our main goal is to introduce our visitors to the main historical testimony of the sugar production and technology, in one of the most significant economic cycles of the history of the archipelago.

    banner Funchal, the capital of the Madeira archipelago, was declared a city in the 1500s, and became an important point between the old and new worlds. The laid-back city owes much of its historical prominence to the white gold, the Madeiran sugar. Today Funchal is known for its appealing temperatures, wine and crafts. Top spots to visit include the open Worker's Market, Blandy's Wine Lodge and the Sacred Art Museum. Friendly locals, walkable streets and cheap taxis make the city easy to get around.
