Photographer's Note

This is not a ruin, this is the new Culture Center of Panama City on the Calzada dam which is in parallel to Panama canal.

Panama City was founded in 1519 by the Spaniard Pedro Arias Dávila about 10 miles east of present-day town center. 1671 it was destroyed by the English pirate Henry Morgan, and then about 5 miles southwest of them, at their present place, newly built. The city won thanks to its geographical location on the Isthmus of Panama soon in importance.

With the construction of the first train and then the Panama Canal, the city took in the late 19 and especially in the 20th Century, an enormous economic boom.
