"Easter in Cusco" Local Traditions Tip by kare_ab

Local Traditions, Cusco: 11 reviews and 11 photos


For the first time I celebrated Easter in a foreign country. Of course I was very interested to see, what other people do on such a holiday.

In Cusco there is a big ceremony taking place at the Plaza de Armas. For hourse people follow a Jesus-Staute to get afterwards a benediction in front of the cathedral.

Locals go home to eat a 12-course meal...

An interesting experience, also it might be hard to understand everything for no native speakers.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
