Casa de Fierro, Iquitos

(240+ reviews on the web)
Architectural Building Tourist Spot
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.

  • This building was made with the spares metal from the Eiffel tower from Paris and it architect was Eiffel. In there you can find stores and restaurants.  more »
  • This Square is a good place to grab a bite to eat then walk around and see the old buildings and watch the people .  more »
  • There is nothing worth looking at on the inside. It's not very well maintained either. Nothing too impressive. It may have been important or impressive before. There's nothing on its history either.  more »

  • The Casa de Fierro (House Eiffel), is an iron house located in the Centre of Iquitos. Emerged in 1890 during the rush of the rubber, became one of the cultural icons of Iquitos. It is located between Prospero and Putumayo. The Fierro House is one of the best, as well as best-preserved samples of civil architecture in the Peru.
