Opened in 1906, the modern Sea Rescue Station of Esposende replaced the old “lifeguard’s station”, a wooden shed that had housed the longboat used to assist the wrecks of the fishing and commercial community since 1876.
Until the 1970s, the lifesaving boat of this station and its heroic crews made the difference between life and death in the Esposende sea.
The building was totally renovated by the Associação Fórum Esposendense and the Maritime Museum was installed in it, which opened in 2012.
