The most important stage is at Sacsayhuaman. Every year special stands are built for the visitors. Local people sit around the complex to watch the Inti Raymi’s celebration.

During the Inca Empire, INTI RAYMI was the most important of four ceremonies celebrated in Cusco, as related by chroniclers of XVI century like the Inca “Garcilaso de la Vega”. The celebration took place in the Haukaypata or the Main Square of the city and it was for 10 days aproximately.

According to the chronicler “Garcilaso de la Vega”, The Inca Pachacutec created the Inti Raymi to celebrate the new year in the Andes. Since 1944, a theatrical representation of the Inti Raymi has been taking place at Sacsayhuaman on June 24th of each year, attracting thousands of tourists and local visitors.

The Inti Raymi is still celebrated in indigenous cultures throughout the andes. Celebrations involve music, colourful costumes and the sharing of food. In many parts of the Andes, this celebration has been connected to the festivals of Saint John Baptist, which falls on the day after the winter solstice – June 21.

The Inti Raymi took place at the winter solstice, when the sun is farthest from the earth. Fearing the lack of sun and ensuing famine, the Incas gathered in Cusco to honour the Sun God and plead for his return. The celebrants fasted for days before the event, refrained from physical pleasures and presented gifts to the Inca, who in return put on a lavish banquet of meat, corn bread, chicha and coca tea as they prepared to sacrifice llamas to ensure good crops and fertile fields.
