That´s great to know that in Mozambique has one of the Eiffel constructions. If you like Eiffel Tower in Paris, France... so also I am certaily sure you will like also the iron house on the center of the capital. And also near by you will find other old building surrounding the house...
Good Place to meet the young Mozambican elite and have fun. Close to the "baixa da cidade" you can go to the red light district, which according to me, should be an important part of your visit in Maputo.
It's a wacky idea - a house made of pressed metal panels. Must be noisy when it rains and hot when the sun shines: two things that happen quite a lot in Maputo, The nearby Fench Cultural Centre is nicer and more interesting.
Famed for being an Eiffel invention it would definitely not be standing if it were not. Just a house, oddly made of metal considering Maputo's heat. Don't even tell you taxi do slow down as you pass, you're photo at speed will be fine.
