Twelve Angle Stone, Cusco
Categories: Ruins, Landmarks, Tourist Spots
Marvel at an Incan accomplishment when you see Twelve Angle Stone, an ancient archeological remain. The singular stone serves as a popular attraction and national heritage site for Peru due to its mysterious nature. The cuts on the stone make it fit perfectly into the surrounding wall, currently the wall of the Archbishop palace, so the stone looks like a puzzle piece. The polished and round edges make many wonder how the Inca could have cut a stone so precisely and so smoothly so as to fit into the wall, and without modern tools.

una caminata por la tarde nos recomendaron ir a san blas y pasamos por esta calle muy delgada donde nos retaron a encontrar una piedra especial y esa era la piedra 12 que nos impresiono mucho .a walk in the afternoon recommended we go to san blas and passed by this very thin Street where us challenged to find a special rock and stone that was 12 that impressed us very much.show original
You just have to see it. Spend some time there in wonder. Just how did they do that?
While this is a bit fiddly to locate (and please ignore the hawkers) it's quite an interesting spot that highlights the sophistication of the Incan people
How they made these I don't know. But they're amazing to see. Just get to Cusco before it becomes entirely "Eco-hostels" and "laundrettes" for middle class first worlders :S
The wall is impressive but there's apparently no evidence that the 12 corner stone has any particular meaning.
