Religious Festivities in Cochabamba

I will try to make a summary as complete as possible of all the main religious festivities in the department of Cochabamba. This will help more than one to understand the extremely religious way of being of the people of Cochabamba. Most of these festivities combine Catholic celebrations with the andean animist religion, producing a ver interesting sincretism of both.
