This street is one of the most famous examples of Inca Masonry. Nevertheless the street is supposedly built in the beginning of Spanish rule by Inca workforce but ordered by the Spanish. In any case it is amazing to see these huge boulders fit perfectly without the use of modern tools.

Wow, the roads are so narrow. But, this road has been blocked off from traffic, so you can enjoy walking along the cobblestone towards the stone of twelve angles. There were several other stones along the way that warrant closer examination, with their uniqueness and special skill without mortar. We were told that other building structures from this period are scattered throughout Peru, and one in particular (sorry I can't remember the name) has forty (40) angles. Vendors everywhere, we were told from our "angel" guide if you politely say "No, gracias." They will leave you alone. They did.
