Christians around the globe celebrate St. Peter and St. Paul’s day on June 29. In Peru this day is a public holiday on which mainly the faithful in coastal communities and cities honor these two saints in special masses and processions.
As St. Peter is considered the patron saint of the fishermen, in Peru mainly communities along the coast have larger celebrations.
