Historical Reference

  • Panamá was the first European settlement on the Pacific coast of the Americas, founded in 1519 by the conquistador Pedrarias Dávila. The Historic District, which developed after 1671, preserves in its street pattern the early layout; the architecture is an unusual mixture of Spanish, French, and Early American styles. The Salón Bolivar was the venue for the unsuccessful effort made by El Libertador in 1826 to establish a multi-national continental congress.
