Festival of the Virgen del Rosario de Huallhua has been declared National Cultural Heritage

“This recognition commits us to working closely with the residents, parish leaders, dance teams, and other people involed, in order to safeguard the original and authentic characteristics of the festival of the Virgen del Rosario de Huallhua,” said Ricardo Ruiz Cardo, a member of the Decentralized Cusco Culture Board.


One of the most important characteristics of the Virgen del Rosario de Huayllha Festival is the performance of fourteen traditional dances with beautiful traditional costums: Hapaq Chuncho, Saqra, Negrillos, Siqlla, Qhapaq Negro, K’achampa, Qoyacha, Majeño, Chunchacha, QhapaqQolla, and other unique traditional dances. Different masses in both Spanish and Quechua are hold during those days with typical Andean traditional music.
