This was our second visit to the Iron House. The history behind the building of the house and the finding out that it was to hot to live in was funny in a way. It is now used as an Office.

Monsiuer Eifel designed this fascinating Iron House, had the panels manufactured in Gernany and assembled on site in Maputo. Today it serves as an art gallery and backdrop for the marketplace of artifacts outside in the grounds. Definititely worth a visit.

The Iron House is located close to the park which is also nice to visit after, as it will not require a lot of time to see the iron house. There are art pieces displayed for sale inside the house.
