Lord of Temblors in Cuzco

The Lord of Temblors’ Stroll through Cuzco

Yesterday, the great Lord of Temblors made his annual visit to the City of Cuzco and crowds massed to receive his blessing despite the threat of rain. Along the way people not only competed for the honor to carry him on his rounds, but also to give him red flowers called ñuqchu, play music for him, greet him, and take home the flowers that would fall from him. Cuzco Eats presents a set of photos from yesterday's procession taken by Walter Coraza Morveli and Hebert Edgardo Huamani Jara. 0 1524

Palm Sunday in Cuzco

Cuzco enters into a period of ritual intensity, today, with Palm Sunday. The plaza will fill with people buying and carrying palm fronds, some going to mass and others not, as Catholicism and Cusco come together and split. Whether Catholics in the style favored by the Archbishop or not, the people enter into the holiest days of the year, when intensity and passion fill the plaza, streets and homes of this Inca city with some five hundred years of Catholicism.0 1919
