Q´enqo, Wanakaure, and Killarumiyuq

huanacaure inca site

Wow, next Tuesday 21st my blog turns one year. In addition, another reason to celebrate in this month is Cusco´s anniversary with the main feast of Inti Raymi on 24th as well as the Qoyllur Riti festival from 19 to 21 and Corpus Christi on 22nd and 23rd.

Therefore, I start a series of posts today recalling the best moments and events of this blog around Cusco.

Winter Solstice at Q´enqo:
Shamans gathered at this archaeological site to worship the Sun, I was told. Thus, I could not miss that meeting.
(Let´s see what happens this year).

Waiting for the Sun God in Q´enqo.

Wanakauri, A Dream Come True:
Since I read the Comentarios Reales by Inca Garcilaso de la Vega at school I always wanted to know Wanakauri because it is part of the legend of Cusco´s foundation.

Killarumiyoq Beautiful Carved Stone:
I was deeply impressed when seeing the shape of the moon carved in a rock at Killarumiyoq. Fortunately, it is easy to get there.
