Iglesia del Carmen, Panama City

4.6
#6 of 18 in Historic Sites in Panama City
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.

  • One of the beautiful churches I've seen. Very spiritual, the priests are amazing. I love coming to Panama on a Sunday and attending mass here at this church. Very accessible, parking is usually full but the attendants are there to help you park. If you are a devout catholic or not you need to visit the church when mass is not in process.
  • AC was installed a couple of years back, it gets quite chilli depending on where you are sitting and how many people are attending.
  • It's Jewish. Goood
  • Great architecture
  • Beautiful
