Panama Canal is the world’s first canal connecting the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans. One of the great construction projects took more than 30 years to become a major shipping route in the world.
To simplify travel between Spain and Peru, the King of Spain and the Holy Roman Emperor Charles V sent an expeditionary party to Panama in the 16th century. However, the survey team concluded that construction was not feasible.
Until 1881, the French corporation headed by Ferdinand de Lesseps, who successfully constructed the Suez Canal in Egypt, gathered money to buy a concession for the construction of the Panama Canal and started digging a canal from sea level without a barrier.
