BIENVENIDOS A CASCO VIEJO! - WELCOME TO CASCO VIEJO!

Originally built and settled in 1671 after the destruction of Panama Viejo, by Captain Henry Morgan, Casco Viejo Panama (also known as Casco Antiguo & San Felipe) was constructed as a walled city on a peninsula off of Panama City to protect its settlers against another siege such as that suffered in Panama Viejo only 8 kilometers away.

What makes 'Casco' (as the residents call it) so unique is the both the residents and the number of original building structures which still stand today (in various stages of renovation and disrepair), the most in all of Panama. The 16th & 17th century Spanish & French Colonial architecture is breathtaking and only one of the many reasons that has attracted the growing number of foreign residents flocking to Casco Viejo as the premier destination in the Republic of Panama!

There is a rapid change happening in Casco Viejo as both Citizens of Panama and Foreign Expats (mostly European, Canadian & American) revitalize the neighborhood and renovate these historic colonial buildings. From a derelict building might emerge a boutique Casco Viejo hotel or beautiful restored Casco Viejo rentals.

Casco Viejo is slowly becoming full of Luxury Residences (Casco Viejo Real Estate), gourmet restaurants, night clubs and bars (Bars Casco Viejo). It's an exciting time to live in and visit Casco Viejo! Perhaps an even more exciting time to invest in Real Estate in Casco Viejo and some of the unique properties you won't find anywhere else in Panama.

UNESCO designated Casco Viejo (Casco Antiguo) as a World Heritage Site in 2003 which has brought this colonial city a lot of attention on the World Stage and has in turn attracted tremendous investment from abroad. What was 10 years ago a 'forgotten neighborhood' and rapidly deteriorating slum of Panama City is now arguably the most vibrant and exciting place to live or visit in all of Panama!

Come and see what all the buzz is about!
