IQUITOS AND AMAZONAS

Amazon River

Iquitos' biggest attraction is the great River Amazon on To Related image to the Multimedia Gallerywhose banks the city rises. Perhaps nowhere in the whole of Peru is there a place that provides visitors with a view that can match the one from riverside Malecon Grau with its old tile-hung homes.

Still visible in the city's broad streets are elegances left by passing bonanzas generated by rubber, barbasco and rosewood.

Thanks to the rubber boom, in 1880 Iquitos began to progress. There are still traces in the city of that spendthrift era, in those Portuguese tiles that many buildings show to this day.

Dating from this period is the famous Iron House located on the main square. lt is the first prefabricated home to have reached Peru. Designed and built by Eiffel, the building was acquired by millionaire Anselmo del Aguila who undertook to bring it to Iquitos from Europe, complete with nuts and bolts.

Jiron Lima, the city's main street, is full of bustle and business houses. Like this thoroughfare, a number of other Iquitos streets have markets and dry-goods stores offering everything from pretty artificial flowers made from vegetable fiber, to beautiful woven bags and furniture of cedar or mahogany.
