Iquitos’ cultural attractions, while limited, dwarf those of other Amazon cities: especially boosted by the arrival of two new museums in the period between 2013 and 2014. The cheery Malecón (riverside walk) runs between Nauta and Ricardo Palma: perhaps the most diverting sight of all!

Remnants of the rubber-boom days include azulejos, tiles imported from Portugal to decorate the rubber barons' mansions. Many buildings along Raimondi and Malecón Tarapaca are decorated with these tiles.
