'''Iquitos''' ( ) is the largest city (metropolis) in the Peruvian rainforest and the fifth-largest city (List of cities in Peru) of Peru. It is also the capital city of the Loreto Region and Maynas Province. Located in the Amazon Basin, the city is along the Amazon (Amazon River), Nanay (Nanay River) and Itaya (Itaya River) rivers. Its name in Iquito language translates to ''the people''. The city proper with its four districts has a population of 422,055; 462,783 live within the Iquitos Metropolitan Area, making it in the sixth-largest metropolitan area (List of metropolitan areas of Peru) of the country. The official city nickname is ''Capital of the Peruvian Amazon''.
During the early 20th-century rubber boom, it attracted many European immigrants; they contributed to a period of wealth and great social and commercial development that resulted in its unique urban and cultural identity. The city originally was developed from an Indian Reduction developed by Jesuit missionaries (Jesuits) along the Nanay river circa 1757 with the name '''San Pablo de Napeanos'''. The town was inhabited by the Napeanos and Iquito people. At the present time, the city has become a destination in the Peruvian Amazon, due to historic architecture, cuisine, landscapes, accent, nightlife and diverse cultural movement.
