Festival of the Sun Lights up the City of Cusco

Peru and the stunning city of Cusco are making up once more for the last and biggest event of the Fiestas de Cusco that take place every year in the month of June: the Inti Raymi  Festival.   

The Inti Raymi procession begins with an image of the Inca Emperor on his throne in Qorikancha, the ancient Temple of the sun. The celebration then proceeds to the Plaza de Armas and finishes in Sacsayhuaman, some of the most well-known ruins that overlook the city of Cusco. Here there is a reenactment of the ancient traditions, performed by more than 500 locals who have received the honor of participating in the most revered festival in Cusco.

June 09, 2014 - Posted by

Visiting Peru is an everyday adventure, especially if you are in Cusco in the month of June when festivities are at their peak. Along with Qoyllur Rit´i, there are the celebrations of the Q´eswachaka Bridge, Corpus Christi, and the most Important, Inti Raymi, each year on June 24th.

Qoyllur Rit´i – the Snow Star Festival – is unique in many ways and offers an experience that travelers in Peru will never forget. Beginning to celebrate on Saturday, people hike in the dark and extreme cold in order to get to the Sinakara Valley, near the town of Mahuayani and Ausangate peak (6,372 meters) where the celebration of the Qoylllur Rit’i Festival will take place. The area is filled with more than 10,000 participants attending the festival: the mayority of them are local people, but there are also some national tourists, and a few foreigners who have all come to participate in this grand event. Many come with a special request, hoping the Señor de Qoyllur Rit´I will answer, and others simply come asking for grace.
