Discover the history and culture of Panama Viejo and marvel at the intricate workings of the Panama Canal on this fascinating tour. The first permanent city founded on the shores of the Pacific during the colonial era, Panama Viejo is home to the remnants of churches, monasteries and towers dating back five hundred years.

Learn all about the history of this settlement as your knowledgeable guide leads you through the most important landmarks before making your way to the Miraflores Visitors Centre at the Panama Canal. Admire this architectural wonder of the world as you witness ships sailing past and enjoy the high-tech audiovisual shows within the Centre.

Founded in 1519 by settling European colonisers, Panama Viejo became an important base for further inland expeditions and a key port town in sending gold and silver back to mainland Spain. Learn about the wars, pirates and fires that took its toll on the old city as your guide leads you through its fascinating ruins.

Then make the journey to the iconic Panama Canal and tour its Miraflores Visitors Centre. Learn about the history of this vital waterway from the idea’s inception to its construction and its present day function as you watch a series of audiovisual documentaries. Then step outside to the viewing decks to witness hundreds of huge vessels sail through its narrow channels in order to significantly reduce their journey time.
