  • Last year I was there and I really liked. Eye zone is not for tourists went by that a Panamanian friend took us but the area is not access private properly. Near the church there are several shops where can buy perfume and other things at a great price that if... Do not accept only cash card.

  • Very old, colonial style church that is also being repaired but can be visited anyway. Dark and gloomy. 
  • Iglesia La Merced features an historic church facade moved from a structure in Panama Vieja. At the time of my visit, certain areas of the interior were being restored. It was impressive to see the original wood columns as well as the wood ceiling. Having had the opportunity to visit and tour the numerous churches in Casca this church was unique in that most statues were dresssed in real clothing.
  • It was hard to find an open church in Casco Viejo due to renovations at the cathedral and the church of San Francisco. Iglesia La Merced was not only open but beautiful, and seems to have an active parish. Very much worth the visit.
  • Beautiful church
