Panama Viejo Ruins Photos

Panama Viejo Ruins Photographs

Panama Viejo is a UNESCO World Heritage Site located just outside of Panama City. It was the original site of Panama City, but it was destroyed by Henry Morgan and his band of pirates. The Panama Viejo Ruins still stand today. To get there just take an Ave. Balboa bus that says Panama Viejo in the window. The driver will drop you off in front of the ruins.

The tower of Old Panama. They ask you for your ticket on your way up it. If you jumped the fence like I did to avoid paying $5, you better run.
