Iglesia Santa Librada

Península de Azuero

The walls and base of the pulpit in this baroque-style church on Parque Belisario Porras are original, as are the painted faces of cherubs on the ornate gold-leafed altar. Consecrated in 1789, the church suffered through an earthquake in 1802, which destroyed its other tower, and a fire in 1958. Cedar wood was used in the construction of the altar, which was renovated in 2001.
