Panama City, Capital of Panama

Cityscape Beacon XplorMor Inc

Today Panama City’s skyline is a beacon on the Pacific Ocean of Central America just as it was for early settlers in the 1500s. The city has changed much from its primitive beginnings of straw huts that were replaced by Spanish Colonial architecture which in turn was overshadowed for decades by skyscrapers. However, in 1997 two of the city’s most critically historic areas were designated UNESCO World Heritage Site No. 790: Archaeological Site of Panamá Viejo and Historic District of Panamá. Under the designation, much funding has been provided for the revitalization and preservation of these important areas. XplorMor Team traveled to Panama City to photograph the wonderful architecture of the country’s past in contrast to its new modern age towers.
