It is amazing that the Incas were so good at building walls but there are so many more interesting things to see that are more amazing such as Sacsayhuaman. It is always packed with people taking photos (often of the wrong stone) and so if...More

It's stone in a wall. Why excellent ? Well it's a demonstration of how good the Incas were in engineering. The large stone has 12 other closely fitted stones around it. That is rare. When you travel around Peru you will not see that phenomenon...More

Getting to the Twelve Angled Stone is quite easy. There are signs that lead the way. Picking the actually stone is tricky, unless you ask a passing guide.

It really is quite clever that the Incas had the tools to make these stones all fit perfectly. Cutting them perfectly to the exact size and shape.
