Though Lámud is a small village, its surroundings provide days of exploration. Natural wonders abound-there's numerous waterfalls-as well as several archaeological sites, including Karajía and Pueblo de los Muertos. The patron saint of Lámud is El Señor de Gualamita, whose feast day is celebrated on 14 September. The day before, 13 September, is Hatún Luya, a meeting of the villages of the Luya province (the province in which Lámud is located) where villagers share dances, festivities and traditions.
