There is really nothing to say. This place is a MUST. Tiny streets steeped in centuries of history, many cultures - Panamanian Indians, Spanish, English, French, American, Columbian, Peruvian, Jewish etc.etc. It all made Panama very diverse and rich. Amazing.
It doesn't cover that big an area but it's definitely worth a visit. Walk the streets, visit the churches, a number of nice cafe/restaurants and bars.
The meticulous reconstruction of old buildings that are literally propped up by beams is underway. See it before it turns into Cartagena with the hordes of tourists.
