Feel the history as you walk through the streets of Casco Viejo, the capital city's oldest neighborhood. Built in 1673 to replace the original city (which was completely destroyed because of an invasion by the pirate Henry Morgan), the World Heritage-protected neighborhood displays some of the best-preserved examples of colonial architecture in the city. An abundance of churches and plazas give character to the area, while a good selection of cafes and restaurants make for pleasant places to stop and grab a bite to eat. To fully appreciate the history of the area, take a walking tour. You can plan Panama City trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

This is one of the best places to visit in Panamá mainly in the night with full Moon . You can see the Moon raising from the sea. I love this place.
Place with many museums, restaurants and history of Panama. Good place to buy souvenirs and to learn more about Panamanian culture and get see very old buildings. There are many great places to eat (lunch and dinner) and beautiful views of the city's skyline and the ocean.
