Japeri’s train station is historic. It’s part of the first railway built by the Estrada de Ferro Dom Pedro II company, renamed Estrada de Ferro Central do Brasil in 1889. The first stretch of railroad was dedicated in 1858, connecting Rio’s Central Station to Japeri, formerly known as Belém. The station’s oldest building was made with elements imported from England.
The timbered edifice followed the style used in northern Europe buildings, with wooden stakes creating a crate effect and with solid brick sealing. The roof was originally made with French tiles. The front’s decoration is made of the geometric designs formed by the wooden structure itsef as well as by other details in wood.
