Senor de Luren Festival in Peru (17/10)

The Señor de Luren Festival is celebrated in the city of Ica on the third week of October.

In Ica, a city located 300 kilometers from the capital of Peru - the city of Lima, a religious procession is held in honor of the patron saint of the city, Jesus Christ, which gathers a large number of local residents and tourists, and organizes colorful fairs, games and other entertainment events.

On the main day of the festival, the image of Christ (Señor de Luren) is carried throughout the city from dusk until dawn the next day.

The history of the origin of this holiday dates back to 1570, when the crucifixion of Jesus Christ - the patron saint of Ica - was mysteriously lost in the desert, and then was found in a place called Louren.
