Historic Site Tourist Spot
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.

  • This architectural work is being restored as nearly all the old city town, since unesco has declared it humanity's heritage, and recovering the history of Panama.

  • It is nice but not spectacular, they began work so a little restricted, very simple and modest access.
