At over 500 years old, this small church has served this island almost since it's birth. At first blush, one might say "quaint, simple, plain". They would be correct. That lend's itself to the elegance of the architecture, the timeless craftsmanship, the antiquity of the experience is uplifting. In special Holidays, the church is decorate inside with flowers and such by the people of Taboga. Truly impressive.

According to our guide on the island, this is the second oldest Catolic church in Latin America. It is impresively standing tall and white over the town, visible from a distance. During most afternoons, the local people have basket matches, celebrations, and sport competitions for kids in the square, right in front of the church. However, what I liked best, was the Plaza Cafe located in the square facing San Pedro sanctuary. It is owned by a very nice American/Panamenian gentleman and he makes the best coffee on the island. His shop offers antiques, art and books, being in my opinion, the most wonderful shopping-cum-exhibition place on the island.

Iglesia is purportedly the second oldest church in the America’s built in 1524. It is a lovely old church with wooden beams and roof on the tiny island of Taboga. Worth a quick visit. Usually open every afternoon

This is a beautiful RC Church located in the center of town. There is a on-going disagreement if this Church is the oldest in Central America OR is it the " Iglesia de Nata", in the province of Cocle? My answer is it really doesn't matter. They are both wonderful examples of times some 400 hundred years ago. The pirate, Henry Morgan, sailed from Panama Bay to attack many coastal cities including Panama City. The History is amazing and the beaches on Taboga are the best and closest beaches to Panama City. A simple 30 minute ride on Taboga Express starts your journey...travel safe.

A rich and colorful church with a deep and long history. I was told by our guide that some of the interior structures are original. The word working shows true craftsmanship of the era. The church opens up to the town square where churchgoers come and meet before and after service. Touring the town is a storybook of history with pirate tails and other famous people of the time. Such as Paul Gauguin. The towns people are lively and quite friendly. Plenty of open air shops selling all sort of goods. Hungry no problem numerous eateries line the market place.
