This place on the far end of Casco Viejo is very popular with both, locals and tourists. Best time to visit is at sunset because of less heat and perfect light to catch the outstanding modern city panorama. Many street vendors (not aggressive) offering souvenirs...More

A great place to stroll and do some people watching. Also a lot to learn about the people who made such a commitment to building the Panama Anal.

I really enjoyed Paseo De Las Bovedas for the stunning views of modern Panama. The obelisk is dedicated to the French that were unable to finish to build the Canal...kind of a funny tribute to failure? Lots of souvenir shops if you like that kind...More

Ruins of Panama’s former city prison. Today, there are cultural exhibitions housed here. In the immediate area are vendors selling tourist trinkets. Adjacent are fabulous views of the Panama City skyline as well as a monument honoring the French effort in building the Canal.

Th monument here was built as a tribute to the French who originally tried an failed to build the Panama canal. The monument is impressive and has a number of inscriptions. the walkway is beautiful and the view of the city's skyline is really something.

I really wanted to read about teddy roosevelt, Carlos Finlay, and the creation of the Panama Canal but the displays are in Spanish and there was no one I could ask to help translate. I could read only 1/2 of the information.

We enjoyed a leisurely walk through this section of Casco Viejo. Wonderful views of the ocean and large ships waiting to enter the canal. We made sure to purchase a Mola embroidery panel from a woman of the Kuna tribe. Unique item to take home...More
