Señor de los Temblores
This celebration is of particular interest because they can clearly appreciate the fusion of Andean religions and Christianity. The same Cathedral of Cusco, in which lies the image, is constructed on the basis of the ancient temple dedicated to the god "Ila Tikse Wiracocha Apu". The image of the Lord of the Earthquakes is carried in procession along the streets of the city as it was with the ancient mummies of chiefs, priests and Inca rulers.
Finally, the centerpiece of the celebration falls on ñucchu flower (salvia esplendes), which was used for offerings to Viracocha and currently is part ot the crown of the Lord of the Earthquakes.
The procession of Lord of the Earthquakes is between the second half of March and the first week of April, in the framework of the Easter Monday of Holy Week in Cusco.
It was in 1650 when, according to devotees, a painting of Christ of Good Luck, donated by Charles V, a strong earthquake stopped in Cusco, the people will worship the image of Taitacha Tremors.
Despite years no brush has dared to touch it up. Weather and especially the smoke of candles and candles have blackened making it a strange-looking black Christ bleak.
