Luna's Castle is located in a old Spanish colonial mansion with vaulted ceilings, and balconies with sweeping views of Panama bay and the modern city. Located in Casco Viejo, the heart of the old city, Luna’s is just minutes from restaurants, bars, supermarkets and a multitude of shopping opportunities.
Within 10 minutes of our front door you can see the Presidential Palace, the Metropolitana Cathedral, the National Theater, a plenty of low and high end restaurants, bars and coffee hoses as well as artesian shops and pedestrian plazas. It sits on the periphery of the remodeled section of Casco Viejo - you can feel the refined elegance of the mansion across the street and yet behind us the vibrant, real side of San Felipe. Unlike most buildings in Casco Viejo, Luna's Castle is in great condition, with original wooden staircases and the original city wall lining our patio.
