Completed and settled in 1673, it was built following the near-total destruction of the original city of Panama, Panamá Viejo, in 1671, when the latter was attacked by pirates. It was designated a World Heritage Site in 1997. It is the home to the most exciting nightlife in Panama City today. You can find dozens of international food choices here and it is never shy about the nightlife experience it offers. You can find quiet cafes, house music and live bands playing every week here.
