Welsh pirate Henry Morgan destroyed the original Panama City, now called Panama La Vieja, in 1671.

The city was then rebuilt in 1673 about 8 kilometers away in a safer area now commonly known as Casco Viejo. Some other names for this quaint neighborhood are Casco Antiguo, San Felipe, or Catedral (Cathedral).

Architecture enthusiasts will enjoy walking around Casco Viejo, which has a mixture of building styles including French, Spanish, Republican, Art Deco, Colonial and Caribbean.

Stopping here for lunch was part of our Panama City Tour with Your Man In Panama Tours. We ate some excellent local food at the Restaurante Rene Cafe.

Another highlight of the visit was seeing the stained glass windows inside the "catedral" (cathedral).
