Festivities

Peruvians’ roots are manifested in their traditions and celebrations which remain lively and occur annually.  To prove this, you only need to see them dancing in their colorful costumes to the rhythm of live bands, walking round the streets decorated with flower carpets. All this occurs over a few days.
