Travel to Cuzco (spelled Cusco locally), Peru in June and, in addition to the city’s museums and churches and nearby archaeological sites, you’ll be treated to a string of street festivals called Fiestas del Cuzco (Festivals of Cuzco) which culminate in the spectacular Inti Raymi festival marking the Incan new year near the end of June. Our selection of photos and video will help you enjoy the sights and sounds of the colorful and cultural celebrations which attract bands and dance troupes from across the country to show off regional costumes, music, and choreography around the city’s central Plaza de Armas.
Feel the full impact of celebrations in our video, below.
