Cusco festivals

In a traditional Cusco festival whether Catholic or Inca in origin you can witness the manifestation of vitality, pride and happiness.

Christian festivals are based on the pre-Hispanic tradition of the Taki (meaning "sing and dance", in Quechua) dedicated to pagan gods.

The celebrations boast rich programmes, which include parades, dances, processions, pilgrimages, dinners, handicrafts and agricultural fairs as well as other events. These celebrations freely alternate between sensuality and spirituality, order and temporary chaos, the past and the future.

The festivals of Cusco form a radiant rainbow, whose colours bring together sounds, flavours, textures and scents and with a vigorous sense of lively theatre they reinvent the history of Cusco and produce a merging of Man and nature.
