Casco Viejo Panama City Photographs

Casco Viejo Panama City Photos

The following photographs are of the Casco Viejo- Casco Antiguo- Old town of Panama City, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Neighborhood. This place is awesome. It jets out on a point into the sea and the antique buildings of Panama rise up into the city scape. The Casco Viejo section is currently being rebuilt with great energy. It is especially interesting now as you can view the old ruins of buildings right next to ones that have been restored. I have a feeling that Casco Viejo will look much different a few years from now: the construction crews are working! Hurry up! Go there!

  1. Thanks for the photos of Casco Viejo. We will be there in three weeks. Grew up as a zonie, but my husband had never dreamed of visiting. Here we go, and we WILL walk slow.


Ho fellow travelers! Please leave any comment you can think of about photography and traveling!
