Photo spot: Panama Viejo in Panama City

Often overlooked by travelers is Panama Viejo, located in the northern outskirts of Panama City. Panama Viejo is a Spanish settlement dating back from the year of 1519. While not as spectacular as other ruins in Latin America, Panama Viejo is still a good place to take nice photos
