Inti Raymi

Inti Raymi

Inti Raymi, which when translated from Quechua means 'Fiesta del Sol' (Sun Festival) is one of the most important festivals of the imperial city of Cusco. This marvelous spectacle which takes place on the Sacsayhuaman esplanade is celebrated every June 24th and is meant to pay homage to the Sun god, a supreme symbol of worship in Inca culture. Currently close to 750 actors participate, who portray their ancestors with the same fervor as the previous century.

Inti Raymi Celebration 

In 2016, the historic festival of Inti Raymi won't be the same as always. It will be full of substantial changes such as the participation of delegations representing the four parts of the Inca Empire (Cuatro Suyos) from Ecuador, Bolivia, and Argentina. Additionally, dialogues will be reduced from the re-enactment with the goal of showing a streamlined staging of the celebration. Dare to witness this spectacle full of culture and tradition!
  • Inti Raymi takes place in three historical and natural sites that are representative of the festival. Coricancha, Haucaypata, and Sacsayhuaman.
