The building is an architectural gem. One of the world’s leading restoration architects, Francisco Montanes, and a cutting edge Spanish design group, Bersale, S.A., worked together for almost two years to restore La Isabela to its former elegance. Their vision was to adhere to UNESCO’s World Heritage Site Guidelines and maintain the 19th century elements of La Isabela’s colonial architecture while incorporating touches of cutting edge design. To complement their efforts, selected pieces of Panamanian art are exhibited throughout the building and the apartment. La Isabela – an integration of styles, materials, and perspectives ranging from the 19th to the 21st century.
