Just walking into this cathedral will take your breath away. So many statues and pictures dating back so so many years. So much gold trimmings and stained glass. Don't miss out

Although one of the towers is shrouded in scaffolding, it is easy to see the splendour of this Cathedral and what it will look like when the renovation is finished.

Excellent example of the architecture as well as the building integrity of old Panama. Very impressive structure that serves as a symbol of Panamas religious nature.

This is a very pretty cathedral and a nice place to sit out of the heat and reflect on the nice people and places in Panama City.
