The name “Sugarloaf“, by Wikipedia, was coined in the 16th century by the Portuguese during the heyday of sugar cane trade in Brazil. Blocks of sugar were placed in conical molds made of clay to be transported on ships. The shape given by these molds was similar to the peak, hence the name. Today, a cable car called “bondinho” or “teleférico” by Brazilian people runs along the route between the peaks of Sugarloaf and Morro da Urca. After the Christ the Redeemer (Cristo Redentor) statue, Sugarloaf is the most iconic spot in the city. Visited by thousands of tourist every year.
