San Juan Quarter
The old colonial quarter of Sancti Spíritus is centred on the streets between Calle Panchito Jiménez and the Yayabo river. Its paved streets lined with colourful small houses with tiled roofs add plenty of charm to the district. Far from the noise of traffic, head down to the banks of the river where, to the right, you can admire the yellow and brick silhouette of the Puente Yayabo, spanning the river of the same name. This medieval-style stone bridge was built in 1825.
