The Sun, which was considered the most important deity in the whole Inca empire, was worshiped in the Inca culture and one of the most important celebrations then was that of "Inti Raymi," the celebration to honor the god Inti (the Sun). This religious Inca ceremony is unique and the representation takes place every year on the 24th of June in Cusco. See our traveller's testimonials for inspiration on your 2014 travel.
The celebration of Inti Raymi or festival of the Sun takes place in three stages: the first part takes place at Koricancha (Temple of the Sun) and starts at 8 am, the second part takes place at the Plaza de Armas of Cusco at about 10:30; the last (main part) takes place at the esplanade of Sacsayhuaman (5 km away from Cusco city) at about 1 pm. The tour finishes around 3 pm. with the transfer back to your hotel.
