It was cool to see it, particularly if you learn why it’s a source of cultural pride, it required almost no effort to get to, it’s close to the Plaza De Armas, it can be enjoyed in a few minutes and then carry on

This stone is absolutely amazing. Uniformity was not the Incas thing. They appear to have simply taken whatever stones they had available and shaped them to fit whatever hole they had. The result is an amazing mosaic of stones of differing sizes and shapes, all woven into a spectacularly beautiful wall of stone. This stone was part of the palace of one of the Inca emperors. In this case, instead of destroying the destroying the structure by carting off the stones to build their own homes, they simply built a home for the archbishop on top of it. Lucky for us, because what is left is an amazing example of the skill of the Inca builders. We walked all around the palace, which was well worth both the time and the effort, because the twelve angled stone is only one of many, many interesting stones to see in this wall. We went back several times, once rather later on at night to get a better view because there was always far too many people there to really get to see it well.

It’s not the stone but the walk towards it what really makes this exciting.
Dan Blas neighborhood is gorgeous. Get ready for an up the stairs and down the stairs experience.

In the middle of Cusco you'll find this wall made by the Incas. You're walking and one side you have this old wall, all stones perfectly aligned. There's nothing else to do… just walk, see it and, touch it.

Hours of fun for all ages. If you enjoyed this, you'll absolutely love watching paint dry on the building opposite. If you're lucky, your visit will be made even more memorable by the hordes of Americans photographing the stone from each of the 12 angles. Can't recommend highly enough.

A must while in Cusco. It’s hard to miss it. I wish though someone had told me a bit about it, so I’d understood the history, symbols etc .

The title says it all. I found it casually on Google maps when I was looking for places to visit and this one popped up. After knowing the history it does sound interesting. Cool place to snap a picture but i have no idea what people mean by puma and snake. I didn’t see either.

Another Inca wall! Awesome! We searched for Inca walls in Cusco the way that people on a scavenger hunt search for rubber bands. Each wall is fascinating, especially in context of city planning. Imagine the Incas planning Cusco. The Spanish were new comers and took advantage of the streets, drainage and building foundations.

Small attraction that gathers crowds, it takes a few minutes to see, walk to the place where the people is making the photos, it’s hard to miss

Visited in Nov 2019.

For me, it was exciting and amazing to see the 12 angle stone as part of the incredible ancient Inca wall and their great stonework culture.

Near central plaza. Not easy to spot if there are nobody around. I went around 6am and a local pointed out to me.

Don’t just look for this one stone. Take your time to walk around the wall, especially to the other side with the puma and serpent. Both take some time to spot but it was fun and interesting to see that it is not just a bunch of strangely shaped stones piled tightly together but that there are thoughts and concepts in them. I was told there used to be a condor too but part of it was destroyed by the Spanish.
