Plaza Herrera

Plaza Herra sits on the edge of the more gentrified area of Casco Viejo and its clear it has seen more illustrious times. The surrounding buildings, many large residences originally, have beautiful facades but stand in disrepair apart from one or two restaurants that change over frequently. At the center of the plaza is a statue of local hero General Tomás Herrera on horseback. Herrera fought in South America's wars for independence from Spain and later led Panama's first attempt to gain independence from Colombia in the mid 1800s. Parts of the original city wall can be found off the west side of the plaza.
