Historic Walking Area Neighborhood
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. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Casco Viejo and many more Panama City attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Panama City vacation trip planner.

  • Beautiful place full of history. They care much that the buildings do not lose the old flavor. You can buy souvenirs at good price. It eats at good price and excellent.
