Panama ~ Ruins of Panama Viejo

Another week is getting away from me, so this post is going to be more photos and a few notes here and there 🙂 This day was all about Panama Viejo.

Panama Viejo is the remaining part of the old Panama City. It was founded in 1519. Through it’s beginning years, it suffered many fires, pirate attacks and attacks from indigenous people. In 1671, Henry Morgan attacked the city which caused damage severe enough that the city had to be rebuilt where the new city thrives today.

Hope you enjoy this journey through the ruins as much as I did!

I often wish that I could close my eyes and see the city the way it was back in the day. Someone hurry up and invent a time machine. PLEASE!

Hope you enjoyed this post 🙂 There was so much of the ruins that we didn’t even get to see. It’s quite expansive. Just another thing for us to visit again on our next trip 🙂

Only one day left to post about and that was the day we went to the Panama Canal! Maybe I’ll get enough ambition so I can finish that post and share it with you tomorrow. I’d love to hear if you liked my posts about our trip. Please share the love down in the comments or ANY feedback you may have for me 🙂

Until next time.

Much love,

Liz
