  • The visit to the churches of the historic centre is not something that takes more than two hours and is a very nice, quiet and safe experience (of course with caution).

  • Worth a visit it during the tour of the old town. It is curious, and the truth is a great idea, as they took the ruins to make a small "Park", with some seats, helping the tourists to appreciate the place, and pass rest of the walk.

  • Really cool not original thought to be built straight arch but seems it's the last thing standing haha
  • Step back 340 years into Panama's past to envision monks creating this edifice as part of their missionary work in the New World. Imagine what it must have been like without the experience being tainted by tourist commercialism. For the history buff, this a must-see stop.
  • Beautiful ruins. Definitely worth a stop on your tour of the old city.
  • A short visit to see some history
  • This place is free to visit. A historic arch.
