This is Panama City’s Casco Viejo (Old City) district that was destroyed by the pirate Captain Morgan in 1671. It’s crumbling buildings represent early colonial Spanish, French, and Caribbean architecture. Much of Panama’s government is located here, including the Presidential Palace. Many of it’s historic structures are in the process of getting repaired. Squatters have called this area home for a long time — but now they’re getting kicked out in order for tourism to flourish.source
