The Casco Viejo of Panama is an architectural jewel of neoclassical styles mixed with a combination of American, French, and Spanish influence. Resulting in its recognition in 1997 as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
In 1673, Panama City moved from its initial location known as Panama Viejo to a safer point on a small peninsula surrounded by the sea. In its bed, reefs difficulted for the ships to access its coasts.
Also, on the other hand, to the west stands the Ancón hill. The hill allowed him to monitor the coast Also the access Panama City. Ancon Hill provided water to the new Panama City. Besides, the designers built walls around it and bastions that facilitated the defense of what is now Casco Viejo, or Old Panama, from attacks by pirates and filibusters.
Furthermore, one of the bastions, La Puerta de Tierra, protects the entrance to the new city and separates it from the suburbs. Over the years, after suffering three large fires, Panama’s independence from Spain, Panama City grew, and in the mid-19th century, authorities decided to demolish the land gate and its auctioned rocks. The proceeds of the auction would use to repair the sea walls.
In the surroundings of the land gate of the Casco Viejo or Antiguo of the City stands a two-story single-family residence. Each floor with an area of 117.50 M2 and two bathrooms. One on the top floor and one on the bottom. From the house for sale, it is easy to reach the central avenue, the Plaza de Santa Ana, and all the tourist and historical attractions of the Old Town.
Since the start of operations of the cruise port in Amador and the opening of a parking lot on Cinta Costera III, next to the Masonic Lodge, the demand for properties in Casco Viejo has been increasing.
