Sancti Spiritus is a province where there are many tourist attractions, among them the Villa of the Holy Trinity (Villa de la Santísima Trinidad), some 67 kilometres from the Villa del Espíritu Santo, capital of the province of Sancti Spíritus.
It was founded in 1514 and is among the first seven cities established by the Spanish on the island.
Among the places to visit are the Church (Iglesia Mayor), Main Theatre (Teatro Principal) and the Bridge over the Yayabo river (Puente sobre el Río Yayabo).
This last was intended for the crossing over of carriages and wheelbarrows and in the present still conserves its ancient slenderness. Many people catalogue it as an open-air museum.
The baroque Spanish style can be appreciated in a good part of its mansions and in the classical design of the Church (Iglesia Mayor), together with its plaza, which evolved into constructions more adapted to the country’s climate.
