A Walk Through Time: The Rich History of Casco Viejo
By Cullen Heater
Strolling the streets and alleyways of Casco Viejo, Panama is like walking through the pages of history. It is one of the few locations in the world where you can witness such a striking overlap of French and Spanish colonial architecture.
During your stay at Sofitel Legend Casco Viejo, you can experience it all: the gastronomic and cultural modernity of the area, superimposed on top of its rich and important history.
Multiculturalism and the Canal:
Searching for Identity in Panama's Craft Beer Industry
Cervecería Feroz is located on a former U.S. military base in the Panama Canal Zone. Fort Clayton was later renamed Ciudad del Saber, or the City of Knowledge, and is now home to nonprofits, NGOs, and—ironically—the Peace Corps.
Feroz wasn’t around when I first moved to Panama City as a Peace Corps volunteer in 2017. Years later, my search for answers—and my thirst for beer—has led me right back to where I started: the City of Knowledge.
