Worth seeing, but prepare for a crowd right in front of it, with people of course trying to sell you things when all you want to do is to look at this piece of rock.

The Twelve Angle Stone is part of another amazing Inca wall. I don't know how they created such precision stonework, I don't think anyone does. In the same lane way is a Spanish wall, very poor workmanship compared to the Inca's.

Craftsmanship! You might be fooled by the different size of stones, but it's all done on purpose, the angle of the walls and the interlocking stones. Amazing.

People are super excited about this stone. It is OK but nothing overwhelming. The bishop house and the small alleys behind are much nicer.

The Twelve Angle Stone is definitely worth a visit if you are in Cusco. It is / was part of a stone wall of a Inka Palace. Nothing super special but part of the Inka history.

This stone is about 2 blocks north on the side street of the Cathedral. You get there and see an amazing collection of stones, but this one is known all over the world.

It is so iconic of Cusco, no problem finding it, just look for the crowd, the problem is getting a photo without people in the way! Not worth going out of your way to see but if you are passing do stop in and take...More

Our guide kept telling us: you come to Peru with 10 questions, but you'll leave it with 1000! And this is one of the additional questions: how did they do it.... Interesting. You will find it in a nice narrow street, can't be missed because...More
