DESCRIPTION

The festivity of Inti Raymi is a celebration that takes place only once a year, every June 24th the city of Cusco becomes the epicenter of all the importance of the country for the ancestral ceremony that has been preserved since Inca times.

During this period, thousands of people gather in the city to appreciate the ceremonial act that takes place in 3 scenarios (Qorikancha, the temple of the sun – Plaza de Armas – Sacsayhuaman). The main event includes the representation of the Inca ceremony of llama sacrifice and the offering of chicha (traditional corn drink) to the sun. There are also traditional dances and live music performed throughout the day.

This is undoubtedly an ideal experience for travelers coming with family, couples and friends or on their own to explore new adventures.
