What to Expect
With over more than 125 years of history, Fábrica Mel-de-Cana Ribeiro Sêco is a reference in the production of sugarcane syrup, a product that crosses its identity with Madeira Island’s own identity.

Between peak periods and others of less production, sugarcane syrup has never stopped being produced and at the Madeira inhabitants table, especially for Carnival and Christmas. Fábrica Mel-de-Cana Ribeiro Sêco is a factory that protects sugarcane culture as a timeless patrimony of Madeira.

We are going to visit this amazing factory and know all about how they produce the syrup honey cake but also, liquors and the sugarcane biscuits.

You will have a offer to taste, liquors, the syrup honey cake and the biscuits, all made from the sugarcane.

After the Guide tour in the Factory we will go to a Fortress to see the beautiful view of Funchal.

Note: Price is from FUNCHAL and CANIÇO area. For prices from other cities and villages of Madeira please contact us

We had an excellent private half day tour! We stopped at various viewpoints with breathtaking views. When we arrived at the sugarcane mill it was quite busy but luckily we had our amazing guide who knew so much about the place/history so we didn’t miss out on anything. The honey
