Iglesia del Carmen, Panama City

(320+ reviews on the web)
Church Tourist Spot
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.

  • If you are in the area this church should be on your agenda. Quite ornate and simplistic at the same time. Stained glass windows are impressive.  more »
