Itinerary

The Inti Raymi or Fiesta del Sol was an Inca ceremony that was held, with annual character in Cusco, the capital of Tawantinsuyo, between the final period of the harvest and the beginning of the winter equinox of the Andes, that is to say in the second half of the month of June. The Inti Raymi in the time of the Incas was the equivalent of what today is for us the New Year’s party.

The solar celebration was a party in which a new year began and ended the previous agricultural year between the months of May or June, and at the same time the new agricultural cycle began from the month of July, so that The period between the last week of the month of June and the beginning of the month of July was a transition period from the old agricultural year to a new one, so the party was dedicated to that event.
