On the other side of the bridge

It may be that if you are touring the historic area of Sancti Spiritus, you come across with the bridge that links the city with the neighbourhood of Colon.

Colon is one of the districts into which the town is divided. It is located to the south of the territory, and is a very populated area.  It has very much evolved since it was first established as the road towards the southern village of Trinidad.

Like the rest of the districts of the region, Colon is provided with indispensable facilities such as schools, and health institutions. The province’s major pediatric hospital is found in this territory. There are many other important institutions over here that make up the network of social services available in the area.

Colon is also remarkable for its celebrations during carnival festivities. Although some of the former traditions have been changed somehow, there is always a chance to amuse ourselves, and to enjoy nowadays offers.
