Entre el 21 y el 29 de junio se festeja a San Pedro y al Inti Raymi.

Por el incremento del número de personas contagiadas con el Covid-19 en Cayambe, el pasado 18 de junio, el Comité de Operaciones de Emergencia (COE) Cantonal, solicitó al COE Nacional que se declare la Ley Seca.

El COE Cantonal, en cumplimiento a la prórroga del estado de excepción dispuesto por el Ejecutivo, prohibió la organización de eventos de concentración masiva y el consumo de bebidas alcohólicas en los espacios públicos.

En Cayambe, cantón de la provincia de Pichincha, entre el 21 y el 29 de junio se celebran las fiestas de San Pedro, su patrono y del Inti Raymi. Pero por la pandemia estas se las efectuará «casa adentro».

Según el Municipio de Cayambe, este año se priorizará más la vida que la fiesta y bajo el lema «El Inti Raymi lo llevamos dentro» se pide a la gente que no se exponga.

Normalmente en estos días, considerados sagrados para los habitantes de las diferentes comunidades, se realizaban varios cultos al dios Sol que es el que permite la purificación de la tierra y las cosechas de los productos cada año.

Anualmente ofrecían a los turistas nacionales y extranjeros una fiesta en la que participaban gente de las diferentes comunidades. En las danzas se destacaban personajes como: las chinucas, el diabluma y los aruchicos que cantaban coplas con la ayuda de instrumentos como: las flautas, bocinas y tundas.

Las fiestas son de carácter religioso y es la oportunidad para conocer sobre el significado que tiene para los pobladores la denominada ‘toma de la plaza por parte de las comunidades’. Este es un evento que se realiza en la Plazoleta de La Banda y tiene una gran carga cultural e histórica.

Si bien el día de la fiesta es el 29 de junio de cada año, existen las octavas que se realizan con anterioridad cada fin de semana.

La visita al cantón Cayambe permite además disfrutar de la gastronomía que les ha dado identidad, uno de los bocadillos propios de la zona son los bizcochos y el queso de hoja que se ofrecen desde la carretera.

Otro de los platos típicos es el richu jacu, una colada hecha con todos los granos. En este sitio también se puede disfrutar de un delicioso cariucho, una mezcla de papas cocinadas con tajadas de queso, huevo y cuy asado.

En años anteriores dentro de los festejos la Comisión de Fiestas organizaba toros populares, desfiles, pregones con la presentación de artistas, juegos pirotécnicos, bailes populares y palos encebados.

La fiesta del Inti Raymi en Quito se realizó de forma virtual. Para Ariruma Kowii, director de la Cátedra y del Área de Letras y Estudios Culturales de la Universidad Andina Simón Bolívar y gestor de esta celebración en la capital, el Inti Raymi es un proceso importante porque durante décadas pasó desaparecido.

En una publicación del centro de estudios se explica que antes de la llegada de los españoles, Quito era un punto principal de la celebración por ser la mitad del mundo. “Debe haber sido muy majestuosa la celebración”, señala el académico. (El Arca)

  1. I think what you said made a lot of sense.
    But, think about this, suppose you added a little information? I ain’t saying your content isn’t solid, however suppose you added a title to possibly grab folk’s attention? I mean Culto al sol en Cayambe será casa adentro | is a
    little boring. You could glance at Yahoo’s front page and see how they write post headlines to grab viewers interested.

    You might add a related video or a pic or two to get people interested about everything’ve written. In my
    opinion, it could bring your blog a little bit more interesting. http://ciaalis2u.com/
