Sancti Spiritus, Cuba

The peaceful capital of Sancti Spiritus province was, like Trinidad, founded by Diego Velazquez in 1514.

It became the military, political and economic centre of the area in the colonial period which has led to the city being embellished with elegant 17th and 18th century mansions.

It is located deep in the heart of fertile agricultural countryside and its compact and attractive colonial centre is similar to Trinidad's but receives far fewer visitors.
