Each location holds many festivities held every year in Peru.
In the Andean city of Cusco the most important Incan festival Inti Raymi is held every year just after the winter solstice in June. It is a brilliant festival of colour, costumes, indigenous music, reinactment of the Inca ceremonies and dance and finishes in the monolithic ruins of Sacsayhuaman. It really is a celebration that highlights the passion of the Andean people and their ancient traditions. Most of these traditons are based in the offerings and blessings to Patchamama (Mother Earth) and Inti (Sun).
