Originally built and settled in 1671 after the destruction of Panama Viejo, by Captain Henry Morgan. Casco Viejo Panama,also known as Casco Antiguo & San Felipe was constructed as a walled city on a peninsula off of Panama City to protect its settlers against another siege such as that suffered in Panama Viejo
UNESCO designated Casco Viejo (Casco Antiguo) as a World Heritage Site in 2003 and it is slowly being renovated back to its original splendor.
I find beauty in the old buildings that over time have become part building part nature and I hope as the Casco area becomes new again people will remember to photograph these old beauties.
