  • It is located next to the road that passes through the town towards the beach, next to the Church. It is an interesting Museum which teaches how produces rum from sugar cane, showing devices that were used before and which are now used to achieve this liquor. It is curious what was unusual in its subject matter and that always satisfies the curiosity of restless people. Out of the Museum also there are exposed machines related with the exploitation of the cane of sugar and from the outside is sees the people stepped with them different crops in terraces that is dan in the area, as them bananas.

  • The Museum is overall very nicely done and the process of the crop for the production of rum is explained well eg on display boards. At harvest time, countless trucks parking in the environment of the factory with sugar cane and in the inner squeal and moan the ancient machines. Now many rationalization ideas came to me, but so industry must have worked probably even 60-80 years ago. Even if it is just a Hall with 2 processing lines - very charming and well worth seeing. In the gift shop, there is the locally produced rum or even bolo de mel de cana. You can buy both cheaper at the grocery store, but here you gain a reference.

  • If you're in Calheta for the beach, this will pass 30 mins or so. You can pay for the tasting. It was ok. Nice enough
