In 1514, Diego Velázquez founded the city of Sancti Spiritus on the banks of the Tuinucú river. Located in a fertile country, it moved nearby to its present site after pirates set fire to the town burning with it, all documents relating to its foundation. Though it receives very few visitors today, in the 17th and 18th centuries, it was the political, economic and military centre of the area. The pretty colonial centre has national monument status and has elegant mansions dating back to the previous centuries.
