If you like walks and views, you'll like Ancon Hill. The view on top is nice, and the walk there is peaceful, with the road being closed off for all except working vehicles (we only encountered one). You have to be prepared for a longer...More

What a view. You can feel the history of the area from up there. We loved it and I hate hikes! The old city, canal and the stories too!

The climb to the top of Ancon Hill would not be closed as it's an outdoor hiking road. I would guess that the beautiful Port Authority building, as a government building, would be closed on weekends. Enjoy!
