You'll walk by the downtown historical area to visit the San Francisco market, the flower market, the culture house, the Abdon Calderon Park, and the old Cathedral (without entering). Then, you'll enter the New Cathedral, the biggest in the country, where you’ll observe its famous gold leaf canopy.

You'll continue the tour to the Homero Ortega Panama Hat factory, the most important of the country and where you'll see the complete manufacturing process of the famous Panama hats.
