Landmarks · Churches · Architectural Buildings
Sancti Spíritus is a municipality and capital city of the province of Sancti Spíritus in central Cuba and one of the oldest Cuban European settlements. Sancti Spíritus is the genitive case of Latin Sanctus Spiritus ("Holy Spirit").HistoryThe city was founded by Diego Velázquez de Cuéllar in 1514.The city contributed men for Hernan Cortes' 1518 expedition to Mexico, including Alonso Hernandez Puertocarrero, Gonzalo de Sandoval, and Juan Velazquez de Leon.Francisco Iznaga, a Basque landowner in the western portion of Cuba during the first thirty years of the colonization of Cuba, was elected mayor of Bayamo in 1540. Iznaga was the originator of a powerful lineage which finally settled in Sancti Spíritus and Trinidad, where Torre Iznaga (Iznaga Tower) is. His descendants fought for the independence of Cuba and for annexation to the U.S., from 1820 to 1900.GeographyThe municipality is divided into the barrios of Banao, Bellamota, Bijabo, Guasimal, Hospital, Jíbaro, Manacas, Mapos, Paredes, Paula, Pelayo, Pueblo Nuevo, San Andrés, Tuinicú, Tunas de Zaza and Zaza del Medio.The Zaza Reservoir is located southwest of the city.

Where to stay in Sancti Spiritus

The relatively few accommodations in Sancti Spiritus struggle to cater to the growing number of tourists who visit the historic city. If you reserve in advance, you can choose from a small selection of hostels and bed and breakfasts near the city center. Your best bet is to look in the streets surrounding Parque Serafin Sanchez, a walking distance to the best attractions in Sancti Spiritus.
