You have to see this if you go to Cusco. Nobody can explain how they did it. These wall have survived time and earthquakes. Look across the alley and compare it to Spanish stonework. You will be amazed.

Visited this site during our tour of Cusco. Was quite interesting we learnt about what the 12 stones mean. DO a tour so you can learn more.

It's good to learn and touch the stone to understand how they made in the long past ago. It's in downtown and you can walk to there from downtown hotel.

Take the audio guide (we had to ask for it)! Great paintings and very nice wooden arts. It's worth to see in Cusco.

My best reason for visiting Peru and ancient sites was to encounter and wonder at these superb monolithic stones and foundations built without Mortar, these stones are FIT to each other and will allow these walls to stand for millenium...

To appreciate this the most, I think it helps to have a guide as there are many subtleties. Really amazing stone work.

The art collection is stunning and teaches you an enormous amount about colonial Cuzco. The rooms about Diego Quispe are a complete surprise - I can't say more without spoiling it. Overall a delight for anyone with any training in art history.
