Panama city icon refurbished and wille turned to venue for event

The Panama Municipality has begun refurbishment works on the Municipality House, a mansion built in 1881, which has been the scene of many historical encounters and today serves as the setting for important municipal events. During the ceremony to note the start of work on the project, Panama Mayor, José Blandón Figueroa, gave the house keys to Pablo Torres, general manager of JC Decaux, the company in charge of the restoration.

«When the wall around Caso Antiguo was demolished in 1856, 35 years after Independence of Panama from Spain, all the resulting land was bought by the Railway Company except for this piece that was acquired by Ramón Arias Feraud, who built his house in 1881», explained the archaeologist Carlos Fitzgerald.

This house was separated from the street by a little garden and a fence that surrounded the ground floor and was used as a living room. The bedrooms were on the first floor, while in the back was a small square with a big gate to give entrance to carriages.

The house was completely remodeled in 1926 by the architect, Leonardo Villanueva Meyer. Later, it was restored in 1981 and again in 1989, when it was refurbished under the administration of the then Mayor, Mayin Correa. Twenty years have passed and the mansion during that time has been vandalized.

The Municipal House is the venue of the most important acts that are carried out by the Mayor’s office and will be restored at a cost of $1.5 million «The Municipality will not fund the bill, because the money has been collected through a public-private alliance negotiated to benefit everybody,» said Blandon.

Panama is quickly becoming a popular destination for holding conventions and international events. A modern infrastructure, which is often cited as the best in the region, direct flights to more than 50 cities in the region and 13 in the U.S, world-class attractions nearby, meeting facilities, hotels, excellent restaurants, a globalized populace, and a vibrant metropolis with more than 100 banks and exciting nightlife, all make Panama the perfect place to host first-class events.

No matter what you’re looking for…in terms of climate, budget, convenience, or anything else… Panama is likely to check all the boxes.

Panama is located at the center of Latin America, at the very point where Central and South America meet. It is home to one of the world’s fastest growing economies, which is built largely on the country being a primary provider of financial, logistic and commercial services to all the nations of the region. Its central role in Latin America is vested in its being a business friendly nation, and that is complemented by its attractive and comfortable lifestyle.

Panama is a captivating mix of the historical and the modern, the natural and the manmade, the indigenous cultures and the international.

Since Panama is historically a crossroads, people and cultures from all over the world meet and mix here, resulting in friendly atmosphere, fantastic restaurants, galleries and cultural events showcasing the world’s best art, cuisine, and more. Panama has none of the disastrous hurricanes and earthquakes that plague its Central American neighbors.
