This Landmark Building bordering on the Plaza des Armas in Iquitos is made of iron and hosts Eiffel (not confirmed) as its architect. Nevertheless it's a nice touch to your Iquitos experience is best viewed from across the street. It houses stores in the lower level and a restaurant on the higher floor.
The interesting point on casa del Fierro is evidently its connection to the world fair in Paris (regardless whether it truly was designed by Eiffel or not). It is a testimony to the importance of Iquitos' past. Nowadays, between a million mototaxis and loud surroundings it is sad, that Iquitos hasn't quite developed positively to the present.

I walked by this twice before I realized what it was. Currently a series of stores, best viewed from across the street from the Plaza de Armas. I wasn't impressed, but I did take a picture!

The building itself is not the interesting, but the history makes it a little more special. Worth a quick stop to check it out if you are near the plaza.

This is so underwhelming that we didn't even realise that we had already walked past it several times during our stay. It doesn't help that the ground floor is now a chemists. It could be so much better (like a lot of Iquitos) if it looked like someone even gave a little bit of a damn about it.
the old splendor. In the era of rubber Iquitos was a great capital city .. now remains the entrance to the Amazon but no buildings of this magnitude are. This was brought home from Europe and was put together piece by piece.
The iron house of Iquitos is really beautifull specially if was designed for the Famous Eiffel. I reccomend to visit for everyone.
