Inti Raymi Festival 2010

Every year on June 24 Cusco celebrates the festival of Inti Raymi at the Inca Fortress of Sacsayhuaman.

This festival was celebrated by the Incas as the Festival of the Sun in honor of the God of the Sun: Wiracocha. The Inti Raymi symbolizes the eternal consecration of marriage between the Sun and human beings.

The festival is now the second largest festival in Latin America with an expected 200,000 people visiting Cusco.
