    The revive of Casco Viejo

    Casco Viejo

    Favorite thing: The Casco Viejo is now being restored part by part. By using soft pastel tints to paint the post colonial houses and churches they try to give the old a modern accent with a wonderfull result wich you wouldn't expect in a Latin american city!

    Casco viejo, Panam�� city

    Favorite thing: Casco viejo is the old hart of the city. Part by part is being restored, but just a street further you still see the poverty of the normal Panameño living in the not yet restored buildings. When the governement also wants to renovate those, they will lose their homes...

    Panama city

    Panama city

    Favorite thing: Panam city is certainly one of the most important economical cities in Central America. Its a city of contrasts between poor and rich, between old and modern, between the Latin American 'Mañana-life' and the Western 'Tommorow-life'.

    This economical and political hart of the region is still expanding rapidly. New skycrapers change the horizons while the historical city is being restored.

    This modern Panama was founded in 1673 and so moved at that time from the former capital, 'Panama viejo' 6,5 kms to the east. The Bahia de Panamá devides the old part of the and the new capital from the old, 'Casco viejo'.
