Casco Viejo (Spanish for Old Quarter), also known as Casco Antiguo or San Felipe, is the historic district of Panama City. Completed and settled in 1673, it was built following the near-total destruction of the original Panama city, Panama Viejo in 1671 when the latter was attacked by pirates. It was designated a World Heritage Site in 1997.
Walking through this neighborhood is like traveling back in time. It is a weird experience.
