Resurgence of La Concordia
After being declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1997, Casco Viejo’s abandoned surroundings reemerged to inspire local pride. Following this, the Panama Canal Expansion was announced, and the world, once again, had its eyes on Panama. Just like that, history began to repeat itself. Panama’s economy re-flourished and restaurants, bars, hotels, shops and plazas in Casco Viejo began filling with people curious to discover the paradise promised to be found in Panama. Casco Viejo was transformed into a cultural and trendy site for both foreigners and Panamanians. In 2012, the opportunity to re-establish a lodging project in La Concordia was seized in an instant by the Fornós Family. Now, this quintessential building is a romantic boutique hotel that offers the perfect spot to experience Panama’s past and present. A spot where you can both indulge alongside a decades’ worth of memories and marvel at the contemporary surroundings of Panama’s unfolding future. A new chapter is being written in ‘Finca 74’, which starts with the revival of La Concordia. Enrich your stay in the tropics by experiencing this enticing building, where the ruthless fire a century ago wasn’t reason enough to make the magic go away. This time, history not only repeats itself. This time, history outshines itself.
