Fodor's Review

The most interesting structure on the Plaza de Armas is this "Iron House," designed by Gustave Eiffel (of Eiffel Tower fame) and forged in Belgium. A wealthy rubber baron bought the house at the Parisian International Exposition of 1889 and had it shipped to Iquitos, where it was reassembled. The building now houses a pharmacy and a restaurant on the second floor.
