San Juan Quarter
This old colonial quarter of Sancti Spíritus is centred on the streets between Calle Panchito Jiménez and the Río Yayabo river. Its colourful little houses roofed with renovated tiles and its paved streets are reminiscent of Trinidad, but less touristy. Far from the noise of traffic, head down to the banks of the river. To the right is the silhouette of the Puente Yayabo; spanning the river of the same name, this medieval-style stone bridge was built in 1825.
