Casco Viejo, Panamá City, Panamá

A nice view of Panama I received a few years ago through the old 'vacation RR' on the Postcrossing forum. I don't manage to get into interesting groups too often anymore but it does happen occasionally. :)

Casco Viejo (Spanish for Old Quarter), also known as Casco Antiguo or San Felipe, is the historic district of Panama City. Completed and settled in 1673, it was built following the near-total destruction of the original Panamá city, Panamá Viejo in 1671, when the latter was attacked by pirates. It was designated a World Heritage Site in 1997.
