  • Another example of Spanish colonial art is this small and beautiful church located in the historic centre of the city. I recommend a visit.

  • This old temple with stone facade is located in the old part of town of Panama and is one of the most representative sites to know in this sector of the city. It has a beautiful architecture and they are doing restoration work. In a living room runs a kind of religious Museum, with paintings and historical documents of Panama. Don't forget to visit it!

  • Beautiful church where the pillars of wood. Haven't seen it before that a church had air conditioning and this does very well making it walk around soon something cold is going to get. Well kept and so.

  • Nice little church with nice Christmas theme right now. Easy to visit while in Casco area.
  • 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.
  • Worth looking inside if you are in the area!!
  • Visitando a San Pancracio.
