Warachikuy / Inca War Rite (Full day)

The Warachikuy, officially declared as National Identity Festivity, equivalent to the Inti Raymi, was a warriors´ rite for young males of the Incan nobility, who were submitted to difficult physical tests of dexterity, risk and courage, in order to step from youth to maturity.

The Inca supervised these competitions which, according to the chroniclers, took place during several days, in different places, with outright physical confrontations.

The winners would be ranked and declared apt for war and to fulfill adult men’s functions. Today, Cusco’s Glorious Colegio Nacional de Ciencias ( Sciences National High School ) organizes and stages this ancestral rite, on Saqsaywaman’s Esplanade, on the third Sunday of September of each year.
