Panama Viejo

Founded in 1519, Panama was the first city built on the coast of the Pacific Ocean during the Spanish Colonial period in America. Very soon, its geographical position turned it into a transition point for the gold and treasures of the American Continent that were being sent to Spain, and was therefore, a great attraction to pirates. In 1671, the city was looted and destroyed by the famous Henry Morgan.

This impressive historic cluster which was made of stone streets, and which now embodies ruins of buildings, convents and churches was declared World Heritage by UNESCO and is today a place visited by all who wish to use their imagination to relive such an era of mythical heroes and villains.
