Colombian singer Juanes visited the Inca fortress of Sacsayhuaman on the outskirts of Cuzco hours before giving a concert in this Peruvian city.

Juanes arrived at noon Friday in Sacsayhuaman, where every June 24 the Incan Festival of the Sun is celebrated, and from there went up the hillside to the statue of the White Christ to enjoy the splendid view of the city, the ancient capital of the Inca Empire.

The artist was recognized by his fans and had his picture taken with some young people during his tourist visit there.

Juanes performed at Cuzco's beer garden on Friday night and on Saturday will give a concert in the city of Arequipa in southern Peru as part of his tour. EFE
