There is a cottage for the Prince of Joinville and Princess Dona Francisca. Newlyweds received a dowry that was donated to the colonization with foreigners. The couple never came here, but there are many objects of that time.

A must stop if you want to know about the local history. Here you will get to know why the European culture is so present in Joinville. Free entry. Near city centre. Easy access by public transport. Near the Cathedral too!
