Panama Casco Viejo, Casco Antiguo
When visiting the Arco Chato you now can visit the Colonial Religious Art museum. This is where the 700 year old bell from La Merced went after being taken down from the church during the restoration. It is next to other similar bells from around the country. The museum tells the story of Panama´s religious art history, the symbolism crafted in the altars and the story behind the paintings, sculptures and ornaments.
