The most popular story is that during the 16th and 17th centuries, in the heyday of sugar cane production, farmers used to store sugar clocks into molds for export. Its shape resembled the shape of the hill, thus the name.
Inaugurated in 1912, the Pão de Açucar cable car was the first ever built Brasil and the third the world. Ir connected Urca to Pão de Açucar. Since then, over 40 million people have travelled in the cars.
