Iglesia del Carmen, Panama City

(4.6/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
Admire the monumental gothic-style facade of Iglesia del Carmen, some of the most visually striking architecture in all of Panama City. An homage to the gothic architectural style of the Middle Ages, the first stone of the church wasn’t actually laid until 1947, with its inauguration finally taking place in July, 1953. Step inside and find ornate stained glass windows and an intricately decorated altar positioned amongst beautifully carved stone pillars. The two towers of this Roman Catholic church rise high into the heavens, said by believers to help elevate prayers to God. Using our world travel planner, Panama City attractions like Iglesia del Carmen can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Walking through Panama we noticed this church and we immediately stopped. Very beautiful church both outside and inside and striking its location, almost hidden amid the many skyscrapers.

  • Nothing to do, we go by the way because we took the subway to the station nearby. We have wasted our time.

  • A very beautiful church in the heart of Panama City, with plenty of life. There are daily worship and always with people praying. The truth is that it is most apparent on the outside to inside.
