  • Located in the Rio Sergipe, facing the square Fausto Carmona. The boathouse was built to receive the boat that would bring the Emperor Dom Pedro II for a visit to Aracaju, in 1860. The Emperor's bridge built on the banks of the rio Sergipe to serve as anchorage to steam Apa, when the visit of Emperor Dom Pedro II and the Empress Doña Teresa Cristina in the province. Was inaugurated on 11 January 1860, day of arrival of the Emperor in Aracaju. Originally made of wood, was reformed for the first time in 1910, passing iron structure. Further reforms occurred in 1920 during the celebrations of the centenary of the independence of the State of Sergipe. Only in the 1940, acquired the current structure. For long years served for the loading and unloading of goods and passengers.
