Plaza de la Independencia/ Plaza de la Catedral and The Cathedral Metropolitana.
The Metropolitan Cathedral is located on Plaza de la Catedral also known as Plaza de la Independencia which is in the heart of Casco Viejo with many events throughout the year. It is an important landmark of Casco Antiguo. It has been used as a bullring. By 1890 it was transformed into a park with elements of the French influence.

In November 1903 Panama declared its independence from Columbia on this Plaza. It was at that moment that the Republic of Panama was born. The cathedral reflects best the Spanish presence due to the buildings dimensions and age. The construction of this building lasted over 100 years.

The Palacio Municipal is also located in Plaza de La Independencia. The palace was the former town hall but was demolished in 1910. A building with an important history: The proclamation of independence from Spain in 1821 and the separation from Columbia in 1903 happened there. Designed by Ruggieri, this historic Neo-Renaissance style building with Greek columns and reliefs of mythological inspiration (Mercury and Vulcan) houses the Museum of Panamanian history.
