Panama City image

There are three sides to Panama City: the ruins of the original 16th century capital, Panamá Viejo, which was destroyed by Captain Morgan in the 18th century; the colonial city of Casco Viejo; and the modern city, an important financial centre with a skyline similar to that of Singapore or Miami.
