Celsia announced a ‘trip to the interior’ of architecture, art, and the values of cultural heritage.

The company accompanied the development of a unique bibliographic work called “Churches of the Old Town of Panama City”, according to a press release.

“The digital book rescues the value of the history, architecture and religious movable property contained in the six churches located in the Casco Viejo of Panama City, inscribed on the Unesco World Heritage List in 1997,” the company said.

The book is a digital production that had the participation of the Panamanian architect Darién Montañez, author of the work, who through his texts tells the history of the religious orders in Panama, their foundation, and characteristics.

“It describes each of the churches, both inside and outside, from an architectural point of view,” Celsia explained.

Ginett Alarcón, Co-author of the publication, said that the symbolic content of the religious iconography is part of each of these churches.

“History, architectural heritage and religious iconography come together in this impeccable edition, which aims to record a good part of the six churches of Casco Viejo,” Book’s Editor, María Soledad Reyna, said.

Javier Gutiérrez, Leader of Celsia Central America, said that culture is a source of joy in all communities in the world.

“We support this book so that we can bring a little piece of this culture and these brilliant works to many more people,” Gutiérrez explained.
