Church
“This baroque-style church (Av Belisario Porras) near the central plaza opened its doors on March 9, 1789, but sustained major damage in 1950 during a fire. Although the church was later restored, the walls and the base of the pulpit are original. The painted faces on the ornate 23-karat gold-leaf altar are also original, but the figurines of Christ, the Virgin and he saints were added after the blaze. Cedar wood was used in the construction of the altar, which was renovated in 2001.”

Museum
“Opposite the Central Plaza, this museum (Av Belisario Porras; adult/child US$0.50/0.25; 9am-12:30pm & 1:30-4pm Tue-Sat, 9am-noon Sun) is in the mud-walled former home of three-time president Belisario Porras, during whose administration the Panama Canal opened. Porras was president for all but two years from 1912 to 1924. He is credited with establishing Panama’s network of public hospitals, creating a national registry for land titles and constructing scores of bridges and aqueducts. The museum contains many artifacts from Porras’ life and serves as a monument to the achievements of this widely revered man. ”
