As a sample of the XIX century, there are several properties: the Iznagas´, the Church of the Holy Trinity, The ´Guamuhaya´ Archaeology Museum, The Brunet Palace, The Cantero Palace, among others.
The Manaca Iznaga Tower is really special; it was built by rich landholders of that time who wished to conquer the love of a lady, and decided to build a construction which would determine the chosen one according to the length in meters. This tower used to be the place from where they watched the entire Valle de los Ingenios (Valley of the Sugar Cane Mills), place where there were more than 44 sugar mills. For all that, this valley has been declared World Heritage, which constitutes province of Sancti Spíritus.
