The Iron Palace
Angola’s Palácio de Ferro (Iron Palace) is made almost entirely of iron.
Its true origin is not quite certain but it was built some time in the late 1800s. The metal two-storey edifice is thought to have shown up on the Skeleton Coast after the ship carrying its pre-built parts drifted off course and was claimed by Portuguese authorities. While there is no official record, it is believed that the building had been designed and built in Paris by the same man who created the Eiffel Tower, Gustave Eiffel.
