The word Mola receives several meanings, so it may be understood as: dress, clothes, a yard of material, a Knitted fabric or a female blouse made with the combination of material with showy and varied colors.  Discover in this Panamatour's   Magazine edition the interesting past of this beautiful dress that would make Picasso himself feel proud. 

THE CENTER OF THE WORLD

ŋWhat do molas, Chiriqui and the Canal have in common?   Panama, of course!  Welcome to Panama, a tiny country that for virtually all its history has been a focus of world trade.  So much so that her they call the country the "Center of the World".  Long before the Canal connected Atlantic and Pacific... long before the Duty-Free Zone at Colon...Panama was a center of international exchange.   But there is much, much more than commerce

THE PANAMA CANAL TOURISTIC DESTINATION OF THE WORLD

The idea of an Interoceanic Canal in America
starts with the arrival of Spaniards to the isthmus of Panama in 1,501, and began to take shape when Vasco Nuņez de Balboa discovers the South Sea (The Pacific Ocean) September 25, 1,513 and since then, the world was in need of a marine pathway for international commerce
