Panamá Viejo (old Panama)


As in most countries of Central America, when the Spaniards arrived and begin the process of conquest and colonization, were founding several major cities, as a capital of each region. These towns were later abandoned for various reasons and the capital was moved to a new city where the capital we know today were developed. Panama is no exception, and besides Panama City you can visit the archaeological ruins of the place that was the precedent of the capital. Although you can do the tour of your media, we recommend that you hire a tour guide to get the most out of your trip.
