Inti Raymi

Back to in the Incas time, the Inti Raymi was the most important of four ceremonies celebrated in Cusco, as many chroniclers explained about it. The celebration took place in the Haukaypata or the main plaza in the city of Cusco.

In South America, which falls below the equator, the months of June & July are winter months.

In 1944, a historical reconstruction of the Inti Raymi was directed by Faustino Espinoza Navarro and indigenous actors. The first reconstruction was largely based on the chronic of Garcilaso de la Vega only referred to the religious ceremony.
