The spectacular, neogothic towers of Carmen Church seem miraculously constructed of lace amongst the glass-and-steel, traffic-laden downtown of Panama City. Sharply pointed towers flank each side of the impressive façade, entirely painted in white and cream colors. The interior is a harmony of pointed Gothic arches with stained glass windows shining in the walls to either side of the pews, leading up to the altar. A total of 18 large windows depict scenes from the bible, while 18 smaller windows below at eye-level show different types of flowers. Astonishing mosaics of a holy host behind the altars bloom with beautiful colors, and some of the tiles even sparkle with iridescence. Built in 1947, Nuestra Señora del Carmen is truly a spectacular place to have faith.
