Cristobal Colon de Carvajal, a Spanish Duke, visited the Administration of the Colon Free Zone where he was welcomed by the Administrator, Leopoldo Benedetti.
He is the fourth descendant in line of Christopher Columbus, and he was making a tour of housing projects and tourism through the Castilla de Oro Foundation. This project is to help each person according to their environmental development.
The Duke of Carvajal has viewed the central provinces of Panama that are advancing every day for tourism because of their particular agricultural and livestock development and the idea of the Castilla de Oro Foundation is to help this sector to achieve sustainable social development and that people of these provinces are not left out of tourism development.
They are looking for ways to revive local areas that have attractions such as colonial type buildings, plazas and similar projects and localities that are attractive to visitors.
These plans include the province of Colón. Portobelo and Fort San Lorenzo, which were viewed as key areas and priorities.
