August 15, 2019 is the 500th anniversary of the city of Panama. Its channel connecting the Atlantic to the Pacific is the largest engineering undertaking ever built in its kind and has completely revolutionized freight transport around the world. The Canal is today the most important in the world from a strategic point of view. Already since 1534 there have been attempts to facilitate trade between the two oceans through the jungle. Prior to the opening of the Panama Canal in 1914, the ships that wanted to reach California from New York by circumnavigating South America . But the canal is not just a waterway. Cultures, economies and ecosystems are spread over the dense network of rivers that feed the two artificial lakes of Gatun and Miraflores.
