History made out of sugar

An exhibition that is expected to delight those with a sweet tooth is being held at Portimão Continente Shopping Centre until the end of the month.

Portugal em Açúcar (Portugal in Sugar) is presenting some of the most famous Portuguese landmarks, such as Lisbon’s Torre de Belém and Padrão dos Descobrimentos monuments, as sweet creations made out of sugar and bread.

Following the success the exhibition achieved when it was first held at the shopping centre in 2007, Portugal em Açúcar returns to teach visitors about the history and culture of Portugal from a different perspective.

This time, inspiration was also taken from the local architecture, with a sweet creation of Portimão’s Igreja do Colégio dos Jesuítas on show.

The works of art have been created by students from the Centro de Formação Profissional do Sector Alimentar in Pontinha, Lisbon.
