Casa de Fierro

save place
La Casa de Fierro in the Jungle
And from the guy who designed the Eiffle Tower.

La Casa de Fierro was designed by the French architect Gustave Eiffel and built in Belgian workshops. A rubber baron bought it at the International Exposition of Paris in and brought in pieces to Iquitos. It was carried by hundreds of men through the jungle then reassembled here.

Sounds a little like something out of Fitzcarraldo, right?
