Mur de Cusco
The famous and remarkably well preserved twelve-angled stone is located in the wall of the Inca Roca Palace in Hatun Rumiyoc Street (“Great Rock” in the Quechua dialect) in Cusco in Peru. It is an extreme example of polygonal cyclopean wall construction and symbol of the Inca architecture. Situated next to the Plaza de Armas and the Bohemian area of San Blas, supposedly built by the Inca civilization this wall is interesting in more ways than one, firstly as it testifies to the precision of assemblage of extremely hard stone blocks to an extraordinary precision, one that is totally anachronistic for those who wish to consider it objectively. Consisting of huge blocks resting on a bed of smaller stones this type of assembly makes this wall earthquake resistant. Could this be why they were designed this way ?
