Cathedral at Old Panama, Panama City

(3.5/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
Admire the fascinating Cathedral at Old Panama. Situated in the World Heritage Site of Old Panama, the cathedral dates back to the early 17th century and is the best preserved of the ruins. Dedicated to Our Lady of Asuncion, it was designed to have a cross-like shape when viewed from the sky. Admire the ancient church and climb the restored stairway to reach the bell tower. Gaze through the windows of the tower and enjoy sweeping views of the remaining ruins, verdant surroundings, and the Panama City skyline.

  • Meet a church as imposing as the Cathedral of Panama, was living the story in a different way, this time while on the site except in my century, was a real trip back in time!

  • One of our stops on our day trip a must see in the neighborhood. The church was well kept and the gold alter was pretty cool  more »
  • There is a discussion between the Patron Saint Nuestra Señora de la Antigua and Our Lady of the assumption. But it does not delete the beauty of the old centre of Panama City.
