A walk around Casco Viejo
Out the door we go, turn left, and head towards this little park, with a nice view of the city.
Then it’s past Rubén Blades’ house (Panama’s Minister of Tourism). If you are a film buff or into Latin music you may recognize the name.
A few hundred feet and we start our walk along Las Bóvedas a vaulted promenade (actually the fortified walls of the old city).
This walkway is divided into three sections: El Paseo General Estéban Huertas the tunnel of the bougainvillea's, La Punta de Chiriquí-the viewing point, and the French Plaza (La Plaza de Francia) - in homage to those who built the Canal.
After passing the French Embassy we join a typical Casco Viejo street.
Often the buildings have a small business at street level with residential above. A couple of souvenir shops and a restaurant are along the way.
Another small park is at the end of the street and we are just around the corner from our apartment.
Hope you had a nice stroll. Take care.
