Santuranticuy, Christmas and New Year’s Eve in Cusco

Posted by Carmen Maria Guevara Protzel on Nov 14, 2020 8:00:00 AM

Celebrated on December 24 is one of Cusco’s most colourful festivals, Santuranticuy or “The sale of saints”. The practice was begun by the Bethlemite order of Franciscan Friars at the time of the Peruvian Viceroyalty (16th Century) and has now become one of the most exuberant of the many festivals celebrated in the former Inka capital. Coming from nearby villages in the days leading up to Dec 24, artisans and vendors set up stalls in Cusco’s main square, the Plaza de Armas. The wares on offer include a vast selection of Nativity scenes, figurines of Catholic saints and altars on which to position them. Locals wander the stalls looking for just the right addition for their home.
