 |  Category: Events

June is thé Festival Month in Peru! Peruvian festivals are, by nature, gregarious expressions of joy, pride and vitality. The dynamic celebrations come in many forms but what unites them all is the fusion of music, dance, colour and, above all, jubilation. Every visitor to Peru should experience these first class examples of Peruvian culture.

Arguably the most significant of these is the Inti Raymi Festival. In Andean mythology, the Incas were considered descendents of the Sun, and this festival is a celebration and sacrifice to the Sun God, Inti. The impressive ceremony sees a brightly coloured entourage of personalities representing the population of the four parts of the world.

Dos Manos is delighted to offer the opportunity to join in with the exuberant festivities of Inti Raymi. Hailing the procession, you will follow its ascent to Sacsayhuamán, not only witnessing traditional dances and rituals of the Incan sun worship but you also standing by as various Andean tribes, adorned in typical clothing, bring forward their precious offerings. This is a unique experience that promises to give a real insight into Peruvian culture and tradition.
