Panama City Free Walking Tour Itinerary
We'll meet at 10 am at the Plaza de la Independencia in Panama City to start a free tour of the old town.
Our first stop will be in front of the Santa María la Antigua Cathedral, a temple crowned by two bell towers decorated with mother-of-pearl inlays. Its façade is full of classical and Renaissance elements carved into the stone.
We'll walk through the Plaza Herrera, one of the most central points of the municipality, where the classic bullfights used to be held. We'll enter the church of San José to contemplate a priceless jewel: the Altar de Oro, an 18th century Churrigueresque carving made of mahogany wood covered in gold.
The tour will continue to the Santo Domingo Church to admire the Arco Chato, an 18th century structure that used to support the old choir of the parish. We'll continue our route to the Plaza Francia, where seven vaulted spaces that formed part of the city's defences can be seen.
Then we'll go to the Esteban Huertas promenade, a 19th century parapet from where we'll have an exceptional view of the bridge of the Americas.
The tour will end at 12:30 pm at Plaza Bolívar.
