LA CHORRERA - THERE'S MORE TO THIS TOWN THAN MEETS THE EYE

La Chorrera

La Chorrera is a populous district in Panama that has beautiful natural sceneries for relaxing and enjoying among family.  Though it is a place that is not well known, there are many tourists and nationals that include Chorrera in their list of diverse places to visit while in Panama.

 

Origin of the Name La Chorrera

 

Currently the origin of the name “La Chorrera” given to this picturesque site has not been determined.  According to the settlers of the sector, the name is due to the great amount of water spouts or jets in the area.  Some of these are El Chorro de la Chorrera, El Chorro Trinidad and El Caño Quebrado one of the most famous.  In the same way we can also mention the spectacular lake La Arenosa.

 

Its good to point out that La Chorrera is among the first nine districts of the country with the most growth in the area of construction.  The most distinguished economic activity is the commercial movement.  While within the primary sector the harvesting of golden pineapples, which is exported to the United States and Europe stands out.

 

La Chorrera has 18 municipalities which are:  Barrio Balboa, Barrio Colon, Amador, Arosemena, El Arado, ElLa Chorrera Coco, Feuillet, Guadalupe, Herrera, Hurtado, Iturralde, La Represa, Los Diaz, Mendoza, Obaldia, Playa Leona, Puerto Caimito and Santa Rita.

 

Get to Know the Ruins of La Mitra

 

In 1960, the Spaniard Jose Manuel Reverte who was studying historic sites in Panama did a study about the origin of the ruins that he found in La Mitra, a town of La Chorrera.  He discovered that these ruins were built with petrous material, similar to that used on the construction of the new city of Panama, today known as the famous ruins of Panama La Vieja.

 

The La Mitra ruins located within the municipality known as Playa Leona in the La Chorrera district, has been bastion or a place of refuge.  According to historian Arturo Guzman, there was a trail many years ago which connected the population of Capira with La Chorrera, which is currently Puerto Caimito.

 

La Chorrera

For experts La Mitra, located at the middle of the path, shows that it was a control site:  From there, windows were built on the walls superior to the ruins, from which the guardians would protect the stock from thieves and fiends.

 

In addition, La Mitra is attributed with the fact that for that time the climatic conditions were medicinal.  The La Mitra ruins are located at 15 minutes from the district of La Chorrera.
