Sancti Spíritus

The old city of Sancti Spíritus was founded by the conquistador Diego Velázquez in 1514. Originally situated on the Tuinucú river, in 1522 it was re-established on the river Yayabo, where it still stands today.

It’s a pretty, relaxed city and a great place to spend a few hours mooching around, wandering into the little shops and sitting on the terrace of a bar, sipping cocktails and watching the world go by.
