Raiders of the Golden Altar (Conclusion)

While visiting the Iglesia de San Jose in Casco Viejo in Panama City, three big men approached me and told me they wanted to steal the famous Golden Altar. This ancient treasure was originally housed in a church in Old Panama that was built in 1519. But since the place was hard to defend from marauders who wanted to steal this priceless artifact, the Golden Altar was moved to its present location in San Felipe in the 16th century.
