Canto Rodado Magazine

The Canto Rodado Magazine, an annual scientific publication, was born as a Patronato Panama Viejo initiative, with the objective of creating a space to diffuse the knowledge generated by heritage studies.  The company SUCASA supports this project.

Each year a new magazine number is presented to the research community, with articles written by local and foreign professionals, who discuss heritage topics from different disciplines.

If you would like to have additional information about the requirements to publish in the upcoming magazines, establish exchange agreements with our institution, or  buy a sample, you can contact us at…

From village to city

This publication has been developed with the purpose of contributing towards spreading heritage values and the history of Panama Viejo from the earliest times of its occupation up to modern times.  Its content and design have been thought out to reach a very broad public.

With it, Patronato Panama Viejo intends to contribute towards a better understanding of this monument ensemble and its meaning as the original nucleus from which the modern Panamanian capital developed, the privileged stage that at different times has reflected the country’s history and has provided momentum.  For the publication we chose a presentation that explains to the public the methodology of scientific and interdisciplinary work that makes it possible not only to rebuild the history of the Panama Viejo site, but also to affirm its values and contribute new meanings to this collective symbol for Panamanians.

Thus, through texts and images the book offers readers the possibility of becoming familiar with aspects that normally are not perceived by the public, those that show how archaeological research, and projects for the conservation and public use of an archaeological and monument site are conceived and developed.  The publication highlights specifically the projects carried out with the collaboration of the Spanish Agency for International Cooperation, an entity that has been supporting the Patronato Panama Viejo for many years, through the technical assistance of Spanish experts and by financing interventions that highlight the worthiness of this important historical legacy.

The book Panama Viejo: from village to city, will be available to the public in the National Library network, and for sale at the Patronato Panama Viejo at a cost of B/. 10.00.  It is a bilingual publication Spanish – English, with 120 full color pages.


De la Aldea a la Urbe
From the village to city

Society, economy and material culture.  Urban history of Panama La Vieja

This book written by Dr. Alfredo Castillero Calvo, covers the complete history of the first settlement of Panama City, from its foundation in 1519 by Pedrarias Dávila to its destruction in 1671 as a result of the attack by the pirate Henry Morgan.  It addresses aspects such as the motives and conflicts surrounding the city’s foundation; the civic architecture and defense projects; the convent-based city, urban housing, material culture, and daily life;  books, comedies, festivities and libraries; commerce and transport, routes, the appearance of the first economic power groups, the role of the church, and society.

This book, of limited edition, is a classic of Panamanian historiography and a reference book that should be part of the bibliographical collection in all libraries and residences.

The author has managed a mass of archived documentation that is largely unknown, to which he has applied a refined methodology.  Written in a clear, elegant and readable style, it aspires to transmit its message to specialists, the general public, and university students alike.

The book can be purchased for B/. 25.00 at the Patronato Panama Viejo shop.
