Casco Viejo, Panama City

4.3
Feel the history as you walk through the streets of Casco Viejo, the capital city's oldest neighborhood. Built in 1673 to replace the original city (which was completely destroyed because of an invasion by the pirate Henry Morgan), the World Heritage-protected neighborhood displays some of the best-preserved examples of colonial architecture in the city. An abundance of churches and plazas give character to the area, while a good selection of cafes and restaurants make for pleasant places to stop and grab a bite to eat. To fully appreciate the history of the area, take a walking tour. You can plan Panama City trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

    The place is the old part of Panama, with its narrow streets, old houses with pretty balconies. It is also the tourist part because there are quite a few restaurants and nightclubs. What I liked most is the home of Rubén Blades away from modernity

    These are places where one travels to the antique exploring, investigating, making knowledge of which was past lives. One enjoys by the beautiful thing that every part of our land is Panama to be with friends, couple, family as you wish. Already that are unforgettable places.

    Little by little the historic centre of Panama is being reconstructed and the results are impressive. Be an abandoned place has become a chic place full of restaurants, shops, hotels and art galleries. Very good job!
