Casco Life

Panama History: Casa Gongora, before and after

Panama, Casco Viejo – Casco Antiguo, San Felipe

The oldest inside joke in Casco Viejo is that it isn´t a colonial city at all. As a matter of fact, all the examples of colonial buildings burnt during one of the three big fires back in the XVIII century. All but one: Casa Gongora. The only true colonial house of Casco Viejo. This is what I call an extreme makeover: before and after restoration.

Casa Gongora serves now as a museum, a concert hall, an art gallery. Located in Avenida Central and Fourth Street, right in front of my favorite ice cream shop GrandClement.
