La Catedral (Catedral de Nuestra Señora de la Asunción)

La Catedral (Catedral de Nuestra Señora de la Asunción) Review

Built between 1688 and 1796, Panama City's stately cathedral is one of the Casco Viejos most impressive structures. The interior is vast, but rather bleak, but for the marble altar, made in 1884, beautiful stained glass, and a few religious paintings. The stone facade, flanked by painted bell towers, is quite lovely, with its many niches filled with small statues. The bell towers are decorated with mother-of-pearl from the Pearl Islands, and the bells in the left tower were salvaged from the city's first cathedral, in Panamá Viejo.
