  • Perhaps one of the most interesting and beautiful old town attractions is this arch named heritage. Part of the former convent of the Dominicans is a must in your visit.

  • Ruins of colonization. Is well preserved and with limitations on public access. When, a little church is open to visitors.

  • What is popularly known as flattened arches, is part of what at the time was the convent of Santo Domingo, in the old town of the city of Panama. What remains is the shell of a church, this consolidated and sometimes are used as frame of events, etc. Legend has it that the builders of the Panama Canal to see this ruin at the time understood that they could build the Canal since given what was architecture, its status was an indication that there was no seismic activity in this place.

  • Beautiful ruin of the convent of the Jesuits. It is one of the most iconic attractions of the old town of the city of Panama. #itsamust

  • Pleasant space for events. But it works more during the day. Avoid making nights events.
