Plaza Bolivar

You’ll likely spend some time sightseeing in Panama City and walking around Plaza Bolivar, a lovely plaza located inside Casco Viejo. It is also called the Plaza de San Francisco, as it is home of one of the largest and most ornate churches in Casco Viejo, Iglesia San Francisco de Asis .

Plaza Bolivar is filled with several restaurants and the monument statue of Simon Bolivar, the Venezuelan military leader and South American hero, who was instrumental in leading revolutions against the Spanish empire. It gets very little road traffic making it the perfect locale for cafes and eateries outfitted with large umbrellas on their patios for outside dining. The Iglesia San Francisco de Asis features one of the tallest structures in the plaza, with its towering bell tower.

Located at Avenida B between Calle 3 & Calle 4, the plaza is filled with 19th century architecture, old cathedrals and is one of the most beautiful areas within Casco Viejo, close to Hotel Magnolia.
