It's in all tourism guide books... This is an old place, very classic. It used to be a restaurant in the 2nd floor there, but not anymore. Just in a corner of the main square, It is one of the principal attractions in the city.

Eiffel's house is located just off the main square and is worth stopping by to see for a few minutes, perhaps with an ice cream in hand.

If you're walking in downtown Iquitos by all means take a look and a picture. It's an antique metal house designed (allegedly) by Gustave Eiffel, of Eiffel tower fame. It's not too impressive, but it's colorful and quaint. If you're not in the area I...More
