Casco Viejo

While my brother was here this past weekend, we decided to visit Casco Viejo. We've been in Panama nearly a year, but for some reason had never made it out to this neat area of rich Panamanian history. We had a beautiful lunch, and spent the afternoon walking around this old port city taking in the classic Spanish architecture and breathtaking views.

Ruins- (or was it the "first traffic control tower", eh Chad?)

The Presidential Palace

The Cathedral
La Plaza de Bolivar

I can't help but wonder what this building looked like when it was first built!
