The central Cuban city of Sancti Spiritus has been for sometime submitted to several restoration actions under the so-called Vision 500 program. The project is mostly aimed at the recovery of local patrimonial values and the revitalization of the village.

The project is mostly aimed at the recovery of local patrimonial values and the revitalization of the village, which seeks to be granted the Cultural Heritage Site condition. Construction tasks have been focused on the painting and maintenance of facades, the restoration of parks, paseos and avenues, as well as the reconstruction of several buildings, including some 1 400 houses.

According to local government’s top officers, construction tasks have been focused on the painting and maintenance of facades, the restoration of parks, paseos and avenues, as well as the reconstruction of several buildings, including some 1 400 houses, which will certainly give the city a different look. The investments carried out in the telephone and electrical networks are also worth mentioning.

The work is already finished at the Colonial Art Museum and still goes on at the Principal Theatre. On the other hand, the Provincial Pediatric Hospital was repaired all through, as well as some areas of the Camilo Cienfuegos general Hospital.

The abovementioned governmental authorities also stated that the work is now focused on the Avenida de los Martires paseo, the central market place -located in the boulevard area-, and the banks of the Yayabo river.  These restoration actions have been supported by a several million pesos budget, added the officers.
