El Valle de Anton (or Anton’s Valley) is a town of about 7,600 in the Cocle province of Panama.
El Valle has one main road: Avenida Central — or Calle Central — which runs east–west across the town. A main landmark is the town’s public market, which is open seven days a week, although it is sometimes referred to as El Valle’s Sunday Market.
Many of the people who own properties in the heart of El Valle are wealthy people from Panama City, who use the area as their vacation or weekend home.
I’d heard of El Valle, of course, mostly from reading about it on expat forums. Apparently, it’s popular among expats, for many reasons — not the least of which is the cool climate (being so high off the ground, naturally).
