  • Small, but interesting Cathedral situated in the historical district of Panama. Interesting visit when he walks through the Center.

  • At the time, the façade is fully covered for restoration. Who knows in a next visit I can see it restored.

  • We can't visit the Cathedral right now and for how long? She is completely wrapped nets and fences, you can't see anything.
