Momuments.

Many people believe that among the numerous monuments and sculptures that are an essential part of this nation with little more than 100 years of independence, the major monument this country has is the historic canal which has become the pride of the good sons and daughters of this piece of America, those who love their native soil and proudly show its flora, fauna, its canal, folklore and countless details that are typical of Panama’s idiosyncrasy.

An art symbol and jewel of neoclassical architecture is the majestic National Theater, giving an imposing view to the passer-by, in spite of the time elapsed since it was built in the first decade of the nineteenth century.

This building is located in the heart of the Old Part of the city, in a place that used to be occupied by the Convent of Cloistered Nuns of Incarnation. It has two impressive sculptures on its façade resembling the muses of music and medallions in relief show a tribute paid to Wagner, Shakespeare, Moliere and Rossini.
