Old Panama or Old Panama is the name given to the archeological site where it was located in Panama City from its founding in 1519, until 1671. Its first name was Our Lady of the Assumption of Panama. The city was moved to a new location, about ten kilometers to the southwest, after being destroyed after an attack by the English pirate Henry Morgan, in the early 1670s. From the original city, considered the first European settlement on the Pacific coast of America, today there are several ruins that make up this archaeological site.
