Immaculate Conception Festivity in Colca Valley
Date: 07 – 10 Dec
On December 8, the Colca Valley, located four hours away from Arequipa, is dressed to celebrate the Immaculate Conception Festivity. It is a singular show filled with dances and color. Men wear female dresses in order to get closer to women and take them away.
Coming to the valley during this season is the best excuse to visit its 16 baroque churches, the pleasant thermal waters from La Calera, the incredible agriculture platforms built along the world’s deepest canyon, and to appreciate the wonderful condor’s flight, over 3000 msnm, from The Cross viewpoint.
