Discover Panama's fascinating past and present on this coast-to-coast tour. The first Spanish settlement, Panamá Viejo, was founded in 1519, but destroyed by the infamous Welsh pirate Henry Morgan in 1671. Two years later, the replacement Casco Viejo was established a few miles away. See the ruins of the old city and the brick-paved streets of the colonial quarter before continuing on to Panama's star attraction – the canal. Completed in 1914, this engineering marvel links the Atlantic and Pacific through a 77km waterway. Discover more about its construction and perhaps see a ship passing through at Agua Clara Locks.
