The Hacienda San Agustin de Callo has long
since been the focal point for local celebrations and
traditional festivals such as the 'Inti Raimi' (the equivalent
to a harvest festival).
After the agrarian reform of 1964 this festival with its
colorful dance costumes, pagan gods and Andean flutes and drums gradually fell into disuse.
In order to keep
alive the traditions of the past, the current owner Mignon Plaza
has reintroduced this time-honored festival, which is unique to
the high Sierra. Today the Hacienda plays host to Indian
Festivals, which are held throughout the year.
