 Perú is the site of Latin America's second largest festival; The Inti Raymi 2013,  Festival of the Sun. It is celebrated every year on June 24th in Cusco, Peru and was once the most important ceremonial day of the Incan empire – Tawantinsuyu. Now Inti Raymi week is the greatest festival week in Cusco each year.

The all day Inti Raymi, Festival of the Sun takes place at 3 sites in and around Cusco; Koricancha, The Main Square (Plaza de Armas) and Sacsay huaman. Dancers, animals, musicians, the Military, Shaman's and bodyguards prepare the Inca and his wife's (Qoya) way from site to site to celebrate the lengthening of the days and the Sun's returning back closer to the earth.
