Inti Raymi is still celebrated in indigenous cultures throughout the Andes. Celebrations involve music, wearing of colorful costumes (most notable the woven aya huma mask), and the sharing of food.
Is Inti Raymi a modern celebration?
It is a re-enactment of the Inca Empires feast on the occasion of the winter solstice, a time of great ritual significance. The modern-day version of Inti Raymi has been celebrated since 1944. Among travelers from abroad and from within Peru, it had become a significant reason to visit Cusco in late June.
