Every June, the Quechua Indians celebrate the conservation ritual in the place where the ancient Inca Empire once throbbed.

Intangible Heritage of Humanity since 2013, the Q'eswachaka bridge is a monumental weaving of ropes made from the q'oya (plant fibre obtained from a plant that grows in the Andes).
