Winter solstice, The Real Inti Raymi of Cusco

On June 21 of each year, it is the winter solstice, the shortest day of the year, the day when the Sun is farthest from us, On this day one of the most important festivities for the tawantinsuyo and people takes place Quechua, the acllas cried disconsolately before the distance of God Inti, the Sun, the most impressive, is that Cusco and most important sites, were built following cosmic alignments, important dates, such as solstices, equinoxes, etc, something very Encreible, the study of these cosmically aligned constructions, is called “archaeoastronomy”, and has taken much importance lately. What madness to build cities following cosmic alignments, without doubt one of the most incredible civilization of antiquity.
