Route & Duration

  • 1

    Panama Canal Museum

    It is a non-profit public museum in Panama City founded in 1997. The museum is dedicated to the history of the Panama Canal's construction in its various stages, including the first French attempt, later construction by the United States, and eventual transfer to Panamanian control.

    San Francisco Church

    The Iglesia de San Francisco is a Roman Catholic church constructed in 1678 by the Franciscans. This lovely bell tower is a prominent landmark in Casco Viejo. It can be seen while sailing in the Bahia de Panamá.

    Arco Chato

    The walls of the old Santo Domingo monastery, an unexpectedly important landmark in Panamanian history, are almost hidden from view. The archway is structurally weak, with no keystone and very little curve. Still, it survived when the original church was destroyed by fire in the 1700s and did nothing for several centuries, which is an intriguing fact about this attraction.

  • 4

    France Square

    It is located at the city's southernmost point. It features statues and large stone tablets that tell the story of the French role in the construction of the Panama Canal. The square is devoted to the memory of the approximately 22,000 workers from France, Martinique, and Guadeloupe who died while working on the canal, most of whom died from yellow fever and malaria.
