More Panama City – the French Quarter

I found The French Quarter of Panama City very intriguing, a combination of old world elegance and decay.



The president of Panama lives in the French Quarter, in this large white structure you see below. It turns out the president was on his way here as we walked down the approaching street.


When the president is arriving, the guards are out in force.


We wandered down the streets


past old churches




some with bell towers



Past interesting doorways



Past a government building across from a park


and another large building which may have been apartments, or a hotel, or a residence. I do not know.


There were statues


andthe real Panama hats.


On we went to a flea market, where we stopped to shop for gifts to bring back to friends. And maybe one or two things for ourselves. Maybe.


There will be one more post about Panama. It may be delayed because I may feel the need to just chatter. I think I have not done that for awhile.

I hope your day holds enough of everything.

    This part of the city feels cloistered like you only get in old places. Interesting to see new things creeping in though. A perfect spot to visit – vastly different from home and lots to see, but not somewhere I’d be happy living.


  2. I think I would love Panama’s French Quarter too, Carol. I love places that have that old world, decaying charm. I found that a lot in Portugal. Your photos are wonderful. 🙂


I'd love to hear from you!
