Create an itinerary including Casco Viejo
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.

  • I loved this place you can walk around and find many things to do, many rooftops with city views, restaurants and places to buy suveniers. I Would recommend this place to be visited.

  • I totally enjoyed the tour of the churches. The beautiful display of the artwork and gold overlay was inspiring. The walk through the old city was calming too.
