Historic Sancti Spiritus back to old times

The City of the Holy Spirit readies to celebrate the 500th anniversary of its foundation. The important event will take place next June 4th.

Countless constructive actions have been undertaken, most of them aimed at reanimating the so-called historic area of the town. Thus, the old city has become a hive of activity.

The refurbishment of old idle institutions will make it possible to have new centres for leisure and entertainment. It seems that locals will enjoy again the bohemian lifestyle we have always been proud of.

Furthermore, several streets found in the most ancient area of the city are being repaved with cobbles. This was first done two years ago at Guairo Alley and San Miguel Streets. Certainly, it was a change for the better.

Despite the disapproval of many who think that some of the sites were unnecesarily changed, the elimination of former architectural barriers in these places is a fact to be highlighted.

Let’s hope that the fourth village founded in Cuba by Spanish colonizers will continue being one of the best preserved ancient cities of the region.
