  • In the ruins of burned-out Santo Domingo remains the 'flat arch' which proved to engineers that this area was stable enough to build the Canal here. 
  • When you walk by the helmet old of Panama, suddenly you can stumble with this jewel of the architecture. There you can learn about the history of the site and as the strength of this structure I determine whether to build the canal at that point. It's a funny thing!

  • Probably the most famous building or ruin of Casco Viejo. It is fairly tall so you can easily find it.

  • 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.
