Casa de Fierro, Iquitos

(1.6/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Likely the first prefabricated house in the Americas, Casa de Fierro is believed to have been designed by Gustave Eiffel, though there's no real proof this is true. Bought in Paris by a 19th-century rubber baron, the structure remains an outstanding example of  civil architecture. Don't miss a stop on the second floor, home to a small restaurant.

  • Designed by Gustavo Eifell is made two-story at the time of the rubber workers fairly neglected might have another use is located in the Plaza de armas of Iquitos is more history and tradition than anything else

  • Unfortunately this neglected. Not is feasible if wants to take you a photography for the recall on the first floor there is a pharmacy. They should preserve the place, take care of it and give you better use history.

  • The House is stunning, facing the plaza de armas. Actually a sample of the sumptuous architecture of the period of the rubber boom. Unfortunately I think that being poorly used. There is a pharmacy there and I think that the second floor is unused. Could perfectly be a Museum, a hotel boutique or restaurant
