This is another religious festival in Cusco, but unlike Inti Raymi, which is a pagan tradition, this is where pagans and Christians blend. The festival Señor de los Templores or Lord of the Earthquakes is celebrated on Holy Monday. It is believed that a huge figure of Christ stopped a devastating earthquake in 1650. Today, this figure is decorated with red flowers that symbolize Christ’s blood and are carried through the city in a ceremony of celebration and thankfulness.
