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

Yes the specific stone in this long wall has 12 right angles and is easy to miss. The wall is an exemple of Inca masonry .Short walk along a nice cobblestone narrow street. The shops around the area are good to buy Peruvian things. Look for Calle Hatunrumiyoc . If you don't want to see it, you just missed a... More

The title sums it up. Originally I just thought....what's the big deal. But after learning about how it was made and the symbolism etc, I had much renewed respect and understanding. This sits next to a central throughway for pedestrians so you cannot (and should not!) miss it.

It actually is interesting enough, but is pretty touristy with crowds and men in Inka costumes, etc. But none the less it is only a few blocks off Plaza de Armas and is pretty impressive stone work. One night when I was there, an old woman standing by kept yelling " No Tocar" which means Don't Touch. She had a... More

You may ahve heard of it and it's true. Walking diatance from the main square you will find this unique stone, surrounded by tons of tour guides who foor les than $20 can take you to other little pic spots like this one.

Pretty neat walking amongst history where you can compare Spanish against Inca stone work. Great walking tour that covers Inca and colonial periods. If your somewhat fit, the altitude should not be an issue.

It is an amazing little street with these stones along the route. There is an incline to get up and down, but take it slowly and take it in. There are shops along the route who sell some incredible local arts, crafts and clothes etc.

I wouldnt call this an attraction, hardly even a photo stop. Yes, its a large natural stone put into place and was able to stand the test of time. If you dont know what youre looking for, you will walk right past it, We only caught it because there was a crowd of people taking pictures.
