The city has during this period of 30 days, activities specially thought for the tourist.
These special dates were created with the idea of promoting tourism in the region, but not only of the main city of Cusco, but also the idea of promoting decentralized tourism that will lead visitors to know what is normally not found in their itinerary.
Masses are held in Quechua (Andean language), regional dances and music in religious tributes. The venerated image of the Señor de Quyllur Riti is one of these as well as rituals that date from the Inca times, like offerings to the Pachamama (mother earth). These activities are located in the small Cusco’s provinces and offer one-day tours, which depart from the city.
