Cinnamon (Civ6) Cinnamon is a special Luxury Resource in Civilization VI. It can be obtained only by attaining Suzerainty with the City-State of Zanzibar.

  • +6 Amenities6 Amenities (+1 Amenities6 Amenity to up to 6 cities)


Cinnamon (Civ6) Cinnamon is one of two luxury resources available exclusively from a city-state, and one of three (along with Cloves (Civ6) Cloves and Perfume (Civ6) Perfume) that supplies 6 Amenities6 Amenities. Since it does not provide Montezuma's units with a Civ6StrengthIcon Combat Strength bonus, it is most useful to the Scots (whose cities receive Civ6Science Science and Civ6Production Production bonuses when they are Happy or Ecstatic).

In the Gifts of the Nile scenario, Punt provides its Suzerain with Cinnamon (Civ6) Cinnamon.

Civilopedia entry Edit

According to the Roman writer Pliny, a Roman pound (about 11.5 ounces) of cinnamon cost up to 300 denarii … ten months wages for a common laborer in the city. Cinnamon has been used since antiquity, as a medicine, aphrodisiac, and to flavor both sweet and savory foods. It was imported into Egypt as early as 2000 BC, and was so highly prized among the Greeks that small amounts were given as gifts to Apollo at his temple at Miletus. So valuable was the spice that traders kept the source (the bark of Cinnamomum trees found in Sri Lanka and on the Malabar coast of India) secret for centuries.
