Caught between lush green mountains and the ocean, the capital of Panama is a concentration of colors and styles erected amidst a cement jungle. From colonial architectural landmarks to world-renowned designer creations, Panama City’s architectural landscape is extremely diverse. Here are the most beautiful buildings in Panama City.
Panama City’s National Theatre, located right at the heart of Casco Antiguo, is one of the best representatives of neoclassic architecture in the country. Designed by the Italian architect Giuseppe Ruggeri, who was also behind the Governmental Palace, it was inaugurated in 1908 to celebrate the presidential election of José Domingo de Obaldía. To this day, the theatre stands out as one of the most beautiful buildings in Panama City.
