I used to play as a kid around the ruins, enjoying the climbing and the vibes... Not very conscious of the impact on the ruins. Today the area is enclosed, well preserved and you can really feel how was it living in this pre colonial town.
This is the archaeological site where the first Panama settlement was established. There is a museum and souvenirs shop.
“Located in the main square at Casco Antiguo, this is the biggest and best museum about the Panama Canal. Highly recommended.”
“Renovated old colonial quartier that still shows the beauty of those times, mixed with the modern vibes in between ruins and a lot of historic places. ”
“A great mall with almost anything you would want or expect. Excellent shops, varied food options, a cinema with VIP screens, a supermarket, all in air conditioned comfort. The mall doesn't open until 10am, but some of the cafes are open earlier than this.”
