Catedral Metropolitana Casco Antiguo, Panama City (must see)
The cathedral stands out for its contrast in color combination and for the mix of architectural styles which gives a glimpse of the fascinating history of the country. The stones used for the construction of the entrance wall were taken from the ruins of the city of Viejo. The walls are grey in color, and there are two tower-like structures on both sides of the entrance, which are white. These towers are layered with material called “mother of pearl”, brought from Pearl Islands, and create the look which contrasts the stone walled entrance. You will find the Catedral Metropolitana a spectacular sight at night when the whole structure is lit up. A wonderful place to visit, it will leave you with nostalgic memories long after you return home.
