Meaning "Alley of the Great Stone" in Quechua, don't let Hatunrumiyoc's initial unassuming appearance fool you. Look closely at the ancient stone wall that borders it and you'll notice that its individual components have been meticulously carved to fit together with incredible precision. So unique are these polygonal creations that they almost defy explanation, a fact most clearly demonstrated in the famed 12-angle behemoth you're likely to find being admired by a small crowd of tourists. Though the wall's history is something of a conundrum, it is generally accepted that it once provided the foundation for the Palace of Inca Roca, a famed ruler of the Inca Empire. To find it, just head east and slightly north from the Plaza de Armas towards San Blas. Once you find the Museum of Religious Art, you're there.
Location:Hatunrumiyoc, northeast of the Plaza de Armas, Cuzco
