    Inti Raymi or the Festival of the Sun as it is otherwise known is the Inca Festival of the Sun, the mother of all pre-Hispanic festivals that celebrates the winter solstice and honors the sun god with traditional customs, parades, and dances.

    Today, it's the second largest festival in all of South America, as hundreds of thousands of people converge on Cuzco from all over the nation and the world for this week long celebration that signifies the beginning of a new year.
