  • Impressive and surprising this church in ruins where you can see a flat arc that is not explained as still stays in time. Beautiful!

  • 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.
