Sugarcane in Portugal

Sugarcane has historical significance in Portugal, particularly during the period of Portuguese exploration and colonization. The introduction of sugarcane cultivation to Madeira in the 15th century marked the beginning of the sugar industry in the Portuguese empire. Today, sugarcane’s historical legacy is visible in Portugal, particularly in Madeira, where terraced landscapes once used for sugarcane cultivation are still evident. The history of sugarcane in Portugal reflects the broader historical connections between European powers, exploration, and the development of global trade networks.
