August 15, 2019 is the 500th anniversary of the city of Panama. Its channel connectingthe 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 the most important in the world from a strategic point of view.
Every year more than 14,000 ships from 1,700 ports of over 160 countries sail crossthe Panama Canal,
The Canal aas been an unattainable dream for centuries.
Already since 1534 there have been attempts to facilitate trade between the two oceans through the jungle. But until the beginning of the 1900 there was no technology to allow the creation of a canal and the inhospitable and dense tropical jungle did not allow safe travels.
Prior to the opening of the Panama Canal in 1914, the ships that wanted to reach California from New York by circumnavigating South America had to add 13,000 miles more to its journey than the distances it lost today.
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.
Around the Panama Canal expansion and maintenance works are constant, in addition to the tourist visits, fishing and the activities of the great ports of Colon and Panama that today is a seductive mix of skyscrapers, sunny squares and old colonial mansions of the historical Casco Vijeo, luxurious marinas for yachts and, of course,the canal.
