    Ponta do Sol

    Favorite thing: The sugar was the main currency of exchange with the kingdom that, since the beginning, was requested for the national merchants. People changed a great variety of necessary products (tools, cloths, fabrics, roofing tile, ware, iron, salt, oil). It was sufficient for the consumption of the islands and the kingdom, and still enough to export to the foreigner.

    Ponta do Sol

    Favorite thing: There's no doubt that this town still appeared in century XV and due to its port and fertile lands. Progressed so quickly that, before 1486, already the population had its church, attributing itself it construction to Rodrigo Enes, one of the first colonists of Ponta do Sol.
