Panamá Viejo

It doesn’t take much Spanish to know that Panamá Viejo means Old Panama. This UNESCO World Heritage Site, however, should not be confused with the city's historic center, Casco Viejo. Panamá Viejo predates Casco Viejo, having been established in 1519 and then abandoned in the middle of the 17th century. While there isn't a lot to see here, its stone church tower and other ruins of the original Spanish settlement are loaded with historic significance for the colonization of Latin America.
