Cusco (Cusco region), Mar. 30. Over 21,000 domestic and international visitors toured Peruvian city of Cusco and its archaeological, landscape and religious attractions during the long Holy Week holidays, Cusco Regional Directorate of Foreign Trade and Tourism (Dircetur) reported.

Every day, over 3,000 travelers arrived in this region by road and air; however, the figure would be greater due to the increasing flow of domestic visitors, who took advantage of the long weekend, Dircetur Head Carlos Landauro Castro Cuba told Andina news agency.

Besides visits paid to Machu Picchu Archaeological Park, site also known as the Incan Empire?s top attraction, visitors toured the Sacred Valley of the Incas, South Valley, Historic Center, Sacsayhuaman, Tambomachay and Pucapucara (located a few minutes away from the metropolis).

Visits kicked off during Holy Monday, considered one of the most important religious activities, especially when the "Lord of Earthquakes" goes on procession.
The act usually gathers Cusco's citizens, while tourists fill and overflow Cusco's main square.

Among other activities, processions to the Holy Sepulchre and the re-enactment of Crucifixion also stood out.

    Peru General Information

    Peru, the largest area in the Andean countries, was the cradle of the most advanced indigenous civilizations and most powerful empire in  South America pre-Columbian cultures. Peru was also the focus of Spanish colonial domination for its first two hundred years of rule. What remained of pre-Columbian America with regard to people, culture, and settlements is perhaps better represented in Peru than in any other country.

    The country has a 2,400 kilometer (1,500 miles) long coast on the Pacific Ocean and bordes Colombia and Ecuador in the North, Brazil and Bolivia on the east, and Chile on the south. It is the only country that borders all the Andean state.

    Language: the official languages of Peru are: Spanish which is used on a 73% of the population; the Quechua or runasimi, spoken for a  24% of peruvians. Some specialists recognise to especific variations of quechua on the national territory : the huáihuash, which is quite popular on the central part of Peru and the huámpuy, spoken by the rest of the country.

    Most of the quechua-speakers are bilingual and have spanish as their second language.

Peru: Great variety of tourist activities available for vacationers in June

Lima, Jun. 3. June provides a varied tourism agenda in the country’s inland area, including the traditional religious observances of Saint Peter and Saint Paul, and Andean ones like Inti Raymi, Chaccu Nacional de la Vicuña and Sondor Raymi, added to gastronomic festivals and impressive geographical landscapes.

Tourist activities start on June 3 with the Corpus Christi celebration in Cusco —a procession by 15 patron saints joined by musical groups and the attractive local gastronomy. Chachapoyas tourist week offers recreational and cultural activities from June 3 to 10, including the Raymi Llaqta de los Chachapoya celebration (June 6-11), featuring dancers from different communities.

Sondor Raymi
On June 19 in Apurimac over 800 actors will perform the origin and expansion of the Chanka civilization with a ritual on Pacucha Lake, from where Usquwillca emerged to conquer neighboring peoples. The regional tourist week in Moyobamba (San martin) will take place on June 20-30. It will be filled with tradition-related competitions, parades, gastronomic fests, procession and sporting events.

Chaccu Nacional de la Vicuña
The Pampas Galeras in Ayacucho will host the 23rd Chaccu Nacional de la Vicuña (an annual roundup of Vicunas), where vicunas are sheared and then released. The chaccu is followed by a marriage of young vicunas and an Incan ancient ceremony to thank the Pachamama or mother earth.

Inti Raymi
Cusco’s most important festivity, the Inti Raymi (Sun Festival) is held on June 24. This huge event, held once a year at the Sacsayhuaman fortress, includes an impressive show performed by hundreds of actors.

Saint Peter and Saint Paul
Taking place in Ilo, Moquegua, the observance honors the two saints from June 27 to 29. It is one of the city’s biggest traditions and attendees can enjoy boat rides and folkloric parades while in there. Piura and Tumbes will join the celebrations with masses, processions, dances and food fairs. On June 29, Arequipa’s Mariscal Caceres district (Known as San Jose) will celebrate masses and processions leading to Camana River in honor of St. Peter “the Fisherman.”

  • Sacsayhuaman Information

    SACSAYHUAMAN (3,600 m.a.s.l.)

    Sacsayhuamán is one of the most amazing Incan constructions for tourists. Its Quechua name means "satisfied falcon", it was the falcon that guarded the capital of the empire, since it was possible to overlook Cusco from the hill in where it was erected. If, as it is known, Cusco was designed with the shape of a lying puma, Sacsayhuamán would be its head, and the Coricancha would correspond to the feline's genitalia. 

    Sacsayhuaman, Cusco, Peru

    It is said that the work was started by Pachacútec and continued by Túpac Yupanqui, even though some chroniclers state that it was Huayna Cápac who gave it the final touch. Inca Garcilaso de la Vega says that Apu Huallpa Rimachi was the main architect, and that Inca Maricanhi, Acahuana Inca and Calla Cunchuy successively took control of the works. 

    Its construction took over seven decades and required the work of 20,000 men approximately, both for the foundations and hewn stone works, the transportation of materials, carving and stones setting. Hewn stones could have been located at Muina, Huacoto and Rumicolca, 20 kilometers away from Cusco, and at closer places such as Sallu, Rumi, Chita, Curovilca and Viracocha. Some of its external walls exceed the 9 meters of height and 350 tons of weight. 

    Spectacular fortress built with huge carved rocks jointed with absolute accuracy, this astounding sample of the Incan military architecture is, undoubtedly, the greatest architectonic work of the Tahuantinsuyo. But, in addition, it proves the undeniable firmness of the great administrative capacity of the empire and its powerful logistic system capable of mobilizing and organizing such a work. 

    It is located 2 km away from the city of Cusco, that is, 10 minutes by car. As of the Spaniards arrival its aspect has changed a lot, since this fortress was used as a hewn stone to build the colonial Cusco. 

    Location

    The architectonic complex occupies the edge of the northern slope of the city of Cusco. The southern side of the building was enclosed by a polished wall of almost 400 meters long. The eastern and western borders of the temple were delimited by other walls and cultivation terraces.
