It was from the creation of Petropolis, in 1843 and the arrival of the Germans in 1845, the Provincial Government Fluminense authorities decided the opening of a "carriageway road," to supply the colony with agricultural production "of those more fields fertile and less rough "as well as stimulate the production of cars and carriages (coaches), as cited in the report of the president of the Rio de Janeiro Province, dated May 5, 1851.
Once opened, the Emperor Way, was traversed by Charles Ribeyrolles, who describes in his Brazil Picturesque book as "panoramas that are splendid paintings" (1859) and featuring magnificent scenery that even today, give a view to Guanabara Bay.
Were frequent rides of D. Pedro II, who originated the path name (or road) of the Emperor. Like his father, Dom Pedro II, was a great rider and always interested in intercom, toured several times the Way, a fact amply documented.
Even today, the Emperor Way, penetrates in the Atlantic Forest and is a perfect ride for ecology lovers who can practice sports like hiking, horseback riding or bike trail throughout its length.
