  • This church is truly a spectacular view at night with the city lights on! You can see the original architecture blend in with the newer parts.  more »
  • Beautiful church of the seventeenth century. Visit absolutely and in period, do not miss the giant re-enactment of the Nativity the slot floor. Authentic atmosphere conducive to meditation. Magnificent statues and stained glass windows.

  • The Church and the convent next door are nothing but ruins (fire) but is a very beautiful place. Inside the church there is a bit of what's left of the fires and it is interesting to see the altar.

  • Beautiful old church from the 1500-1600's!
  • Nice church.
  • 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.
