Iron House (Casa de Fierro) Tours

Iron House (Casa de Fierro)
A walk around the Casa de Fierro invokes thoughts of the striking similarities to the Eiffel Tower’s iron work, and there’s a reason why.

During Iquitos’ “rubber boom” at the end of the 19th century, the building was showcased at the Parisian International Exposition by architect Gustave Eiffel (of tower fame) and purchased by a rubber baron. It was then shipped across the Atlantic Ocean, carried through the jungle piece by piece and assembled in town where it stands today. It is the only surviving iron house of the three that were built.

Have a glimpse at the architecture of the historical building, which was once the home of the Iquitos Club and now functions as a general store and pharmacy. There is also a restaurant located on the second floor that makes good use of the balcony space and allows for views of 
the square.
