Portobelo

The ruins of a Spanish colonial port city dot the landscape of the Caribbean fishing village of Portobelo, a reminder that this humble and relaxed place was once integral to the workings of an empire. Declared a World Heritage Site, the remnants of the colonial fortifications add an interesting atmosphere to the town, with the implied grandeur of the ruins contrasting with the modern buildings that have been built around them. The contemporary culture of the town attracts international interest, with religious festivals, idiosyncratic art, and traditional dances among the main things to see in Portobelo. Portobelo is in Colon Province. When using our Panama day trip tool , you're building your holiday based on your own interests, visitor reviews, and the informed opinions of our well-traveled writers.
