Cuba Highlights

Sancti Spíritus

Christened as Espiritu Santo (Holy Spirit) by early settlers, Sancti Spiritus is a delight for architecture and art enthusiasts who find in this city founded in the banks of the Yayabo River another way to connect with Spanish heritage.

The Yayabo Bridge, reminiscent of ancient Roman architecture, is one of the area’s main attractions. Built with clay bricks in 1815 the bridge itself is only 85 metres in length.

A cave ecosystem attracts also Cuba travel enthusiasts and naturalists to the zone near Judas Point while the Zaza reservoir, Cuba´s largest artificial lake, with its many rivers emptying at this spot and Fishing harbours bring sportsmen spending Fishing and hunting holidays in Cuba.
