Casco Viejo is a charming neighborhood along the southwestern edge of Panama City. It was the second site of Panama City (the first being Panamá Viejo), was the city center until the early 20th century, and was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997. Casco Viejo has undergone restoration projects since the 1990s and they’re beginning to pay off. These days the neighborhood has a romantic, almost artsy feel that makes it a pleasant place to stroll and explore.
