Established in 1671 upon the destruction of Panama Viejo (Old Panama) by privateer Henry Morgan, the Spanish repositioned their city on a rocky peninsula, thus constructing the more fortified city of Casco Viejo. Strategic advantages of this new establishment included the fortification of walls and nature’s buttress of reefs, each protecting against siege by sea. This historic district of Panama City has now become a main tourist attraction. Stroll through cobblestone streets, capture beautiful imagery of structure, and discover the diverse charm of architectural styles, including Baroque, Art Deco, Colonial and a Caribbean influence within this UNESCO World Heritage site.
