Historic Site
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. See Cathedral at Old Panama and all Panama City has to offer by arranging your trip with our Panama City trip builder.
