This Catholic Cathedral was started in the 1600's and opened in 1796. It is having a face lift now as the Pope is coming to visit in 2019. Didn't get to go inside but the architecture is great from the outside.

Interesting architecture outside with the two colors. Beautiful building. If you are coming by car, it can be a while as traffic in this part of town is horrible. I would get out earlier and walk if you can make it.

If you're visiting Casco Viejo, you'll most likely see this building as you wander around. It's in one of the main squares. It's incredibly beautiful. They were refurbishing it when I was there.

This beautiful old cathedral is being restored because the Pope is coming. Panamanians are excited and therefore determined to look their best before his visit. Located on a large, shady plaza with a variety of souvenir vendors. The fascade is detailed and impressive. Worth a...More

This is among the oldest structure in the Historical district and it is close to a number of other attractions. This historical structure was completed in 1796 after a century of construction together with the twin bell towers.

Hello, there was some construction going on around there but it didn't affect the cathedral. We went on August so it may be an issue now. Enjoy your trip.
