Coat of arms of Santa María la Antigua del Darién.[1]

Santa María la Antigua del Darién, formerly also known as Dariena,[2] was a Spanish colonial town founded in 1510 by Vasco Núñez de Balboa, located in present-day Colombia approximately 40 miles (64 km) south of Acandí, within the municipality of Unguía in the Chocó Department. It was the first city founded by conquistadors in mainland America.[3] After Pascual de Andagoya, a Spanish-Basque conquistador under the direction of Panama governor Pedrarias Dávila, founded Panama City in 1519,[4] Santa María la Antigua del Darién was abandoned and in 1524 was attacked and burned by the indigenous people.
