Casa de Fierro, Iquitos

2.7
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. Casa de Fierro is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Iquitos Edition.

  • The Fierro House is built by different parts of different sizes of architectural iron. The walls, the ceiling, and the balcony are plastered on sheets (sheets) rectangular iron, particularly silver.
