Create an itinerary including Iglesia del Carmen
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. Plan your visit to Iglesia del Carmen and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Panama City online trip itinerary builder.

  • If you are staying at the hotel Crowne Plaza Panama (in which I do not recommend that anybody stays at) then please double to your left and go straight and the church will be on your right hand side.

  • Beautiful structure, a historically significant building. Easy to get to my Uber or Metro. Enjoyed walking around the building. Better view from across the street.

  • We stayed at the Hampton Hilton and were within walking distance of the church. We went Sunday morning and were able to go to the service. The people were friendly. The church is beautiful.

  • This gothic looking church is beautiful. 🤯
  • 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.
  • This church is beautiful. Make sure to consecrate yourself and your loved ones to Our Lady of Mount Carmel at the back of the church. You will always be grateful for having done so.
