Panama City, the capital of Panama, in Central America, between Columbia and Costa Rica, is a modern city framed by the Pacific Ocean and man made Panama Canal. Founded in August 15, 1519 by Spanish Conquistador Pedro Arias Davila, the city was the starting point for expeditions that conquered the Inca Empire in Peru. It was a stopover point on one of the most important trade routes in the American continent, through which passed most of the gold and silver that Spain took from America. Panama’s old quarter features many architectural styles from Spanish colonial buildings to French and Antillean town houses built during the construction of the Panama Canal. The canal connects the Atlantic Ocean with the Pacific Ocean and cuts across the Isthmus of Panama, and is a conduit for maritime trade. Canal Locks are at each end to lift the ships upto Gatun Lake, and artificial lake created to reduce the amount of excavation work required for the canal. The Miraflores Locks offers views of the ships traversing the canal. One of the largest and most difficult engineering projects, the canal has greatly reduced the time for ships to travel between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans avoiding lengthy and hazardous routes.
