2.7/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web
A great example of Panama’s religious colonial architecture, and one of the largest cathedrals in Central America, Metropolitan Cathedral (Catedral Metropolitan) stands tall over Plaza Catedral and stands out as one of the main points of interest of the local area. Two tall white towers with bells and clocks flank either side of a wooden entrance surrounded by stone walls. Inside, find a tall central nave with wooden pews, which flank either side of a central aisle leading toward the altar. Built between 1688 and 1796, the cathedral was almost completely abandoned until its renovation in 2003.

  • Not a waist of your time - you will enjoy the majestic, antique craftsmanship of this Cathedral. Very authentic and beautiful. 
  • Not even the frnt can be seen. Go to the plaza in front and take a break with the free wifi. One block from the paseo de las bovedas. 
  • The Cathedral of Panama is located in the old part of Panama City, is a colonial style with typical white towers (two) and including its central part of stone of the region. Inside stands a fine craftsmanship. Today this consolidation and restoration.
