Cusco:

Cuzco or Cusco (in the Peruvian way of naming it) is a department of Peru located in the southeastern part of the country. It occupies a territory of more than 71.9 thousand square kilometers that includes mostly mountainous territories, the lowest ones covered by the Amazon jungle.

In this region you can find the first Andean civilizations with the influence of Huari and Tiahuanaco. It is also the cradle of the Inca Empire and site of the resistance of the Vilcabamba Incas after the Conquest of Peru.

It is in this department, on the Marcahuasi farm (Mollepata), where in the 16th century the first vine on the American continent was grown and the first pisco was produced. Its main agricultural resources are corn, barley, quinoa, tea and coffee.

Weather

Cusco is under the macro-climatic influence of large air masses from the south eastern jungle, as well as the winds from the Peruvian-Bolivian Altiplano that are rather cold and dry, like those that come from Patagonia, entering through the southeastern zone and that generally suppose climatic events of greater scale. On the other hand, the local winds that are generated in its valleys and plains have the function of distributing heat and humidity throughout the day. The annual average temperature fluctuates between 10.3 ° C and 13 ° C (between 50.54 ° and 52.34 ° Fahrenheit); but these temperatures vary according to the area.

Relief

Cuzco has a very rugged terrain. The mountain ranges that start from the central and eastern Andean chain have worn materials that have been eroded by the rivers of the Atlantic slope and by the action of pp. This is the case of Vilcabamba, Ausangate and Vilcanota. To the east, the central area, the Vilcanota mountain range separates the waters that flow into the Amazon from the waters that flow into the Amazon that lead to Titicaca. Only in the north of the region the relief is jungle that becomes smooth and hilly.

Festivities

Cusco is a festive town par excellence that has turned religious celebrations into true popular festivals where ceremonies and worship are so important such as: dances, meals, and drinks. For example, there are typical foods that are prepared only for certain parties and the same happens with dances. The most important festival in the Cuzco festival is Holy Week, with its Holy Monday and Holy Friday processions. To these festivities we must add two that are held in places somewhat far from Cusco, La Virgen del Carmen in Paucartambo and Qoylloritti, near the town of Ocongate. Both are equal in originality and beauty to the city festivals.
