Old Maps of Panama at Casa Soldado

Panama, Casco Viejo, Casco Antiguo

275 maps including a map by Juan de la Cosa back in 1501 (he was the pilot for Christopher Columbus) are being shown at Casa Soldado, Las Bóvedas. Each one with an interesting story behind, weaving the history of the “New World” and Panama.  La Estrella article mentioned, for example, that in 1574, Panama became the first “country” in America to have a map of its current territory. And then there are others like the route for “el polvo de oro” (golden dust) and so on. If you love history, you´ll enjoy this exhibit!
