Totally amazing history

This stone, built into the middle of a wall, has such an interesting background and proves the incredible talent the Incas had for engineering. Very easy to find and a quick visit

Fascinating... maybe. Interesting... possibly. This attraction is one of those that is a more scholarly than touristic. Worth a look but it won't take long!

The twelve angle stone is off of a quaint alley type street with stone walkway. There are multiple souvenir shops along the alley. There may even be a musician playing some music. The stone wall itself is a thing to behold. It glows at night with the overhead lighting.

Definitely a must see if you're traveling Peru appreciating the wonders of the Inka craft and stonework. A little tricky to find but well worth it.

You only have to walk past this astonishing piece of stone to marvel at the Incans skill and artistry, with minimalist tools to hand. They were an outstandingly talented culture. Thank God the Spaniards did not succeed in destroying everything the Incans had achieved!

It is not very hard to find the twelve angle stone because of all the foot traffic around it. Just look for the place where everybody is posing for pictures.

these steps are fallacious and stunning. For going to shop, restaurant, hotel, and anywhere in Cuzco you have to step up and down.

we passed by this street so many times and this stone is just breath taking and the reason why I dont give five stars to this review is that there are so many people along this street trying to sell you thing which we considered too much

Don't miss this amazing pedestrian walk flanked on both sides by this extraordinary Incan architecture.If you join the free walking tour at the Plaza De Armas they will take you there and explain it's magic.

Just a few blocks off Plaza de Armas you can walk by this awesome example of the skill of ancient builders, dressing and setting myriad of stones of differing sizes and shapes. It is amazing to see these huge boulders fit perfectly without the use of modern tools
