Peru's Venice lies 3,646 kilometers west of the Atlantic and 1,859 east of the Pacific: the district of Belén as well as the entire city of Iquitos can only be reached by boat or plane.

Founded by Jesuits in the 18th century, Iquitos generated unexpected wealth during the Amazonian rubber boom between 1890 and 1910. Nowadays, the rubber barons are gone and the city, Belén in particular, attracts mostly impoverished Indios and fishermen from the vast surroundings in search of a future.
