DAY03: THE SEVEN CHURCHES
Easter Sunday is when people will get to know more about the seven churches. It is a very intimate process for those who profess the Catholic faith. For tourists, it is not only the religious part, but also to see the history behind.
It is not surprising that there are so many churches in Casco Viejo. One of the main objectives of the Spanish (and Portuguese) colonizers was to indoctrinate the indigenous people in the new world. Converting them to Catholic would make them friendlier.
In Panama there is a freedom of worship according to the Constitution of the Republic of Panama. However 63% are Catholics.
