What Cusco is like in June

The month of June is the best month to be in Cusco, the colorful festivities, the traditional Inti Raymi, the Corpus Christy and the daily parades turn the city into a spectacle of color and music. It really is a free show of great beauty and color. The Inti Raymi makes its central manifestations in the Plaza de Armas, in the Qoricancha and Saqsayhuaman, accompanied by dances the Inca and the Colla go from the Plaza de Armas to the Qoricancha and then heading to Saqsayhuaman.

June is a special month in which every day there is a festive event with parades, dances and traditional music. In June in Cusco the Catholic festivities of Corpus Christy are celebrated and in Cusco they are celebrated in a big way, processions, dances and music can be seen daily, the central point of the celebration for each day is the Plaza de Armas of Cusco, as the main masses take place in the cathedral and the processions and parades also make their way through the cathedral and attend the masses.

The typical dish for these festivities is the chiriuchu (in Quechua cold food) accompanied by a Cusquenian beer. It is traditional to find food fairs in the Plaza San Francisco (just two blocks from the Plaza de Armas) in addition to other attractions such as the comparsas of dancers who are stationed in places near the Plaza de Armas.

Some hotels in Cusco offer their guests a typical Cusquenian lunch with chiruchu and/or frutillada (beer-based drink), so you can’t miss trying this Cusquenian delicacy.

Another very important festival that attracts the attention of national and foreign tourists is the Inti Raymi sun festival. This traditional festival dates back to Inca times, and symbolizes the veneration and joy of the Inca people to the sun god (Inti).
