 iletours travel peruPeru Special Tours: Inti Raymi or Festival of the Sun (one day) June 24th 2014

The Inti Raymi or the Festival of the Sun takes place each year in Cusco Peru on June 24. It is an all day festival to celebrate the lengthening of the days and to welcome the sun back closer to the earth. In the morning the Inca gives a welcome to the people from Koricancha, The Temple of the sun before he and his wife are carried out and presented to the people amongst much fanfare.

Cusco, June 24th

Machu picchu TourCusco, Perú is the site of Latin America's second largest festival. The Inti Raymi is celebrated every year on June 24th and was once the most important festival of the Incan empire - Tawantinsuyu.

Now that you've visited the great Incan architectural achievements it will be apparent to you that the Sun was the main deity worshiped in the Inca culture. In today's Inti Raymi Festival all of the significant Sun Festival rituals are re-enacted (don't worry, the llama sacrifices are simulated!).

This special day also includes The New Fire Celebration. No fires were allowed in the city this day until the fire created by hollow mirror was used to concentrate the sunlight onto animal fur and kindling. Only then were all other fires started from this source. You will also see the Inca representative carried on a litter and toasted with chicha (a fermented drink). In an the appropriate finale, The Inca gives a speech in the native Quechua language.
