Iglesia San Jose - Historical Building Panama City - Panama

Although this church dates back to 1677, it has obviously bee restored. The interior feels quite polished and new. It's worth a visit to see the spectacular baroque golden altar. Apparently, the magnificent piece survived Henry Morgan's sack through the cunning of a priest. This quick thinking man painted the altar black when he heard of the pirate's approach. This church shouldn't be missed.
