Peru, more specifically Cusco (Cuzco) Peru is most famous for it’s connection to the great Inca empire. Today, the city still stands atop an ancient stone work built by the Incas. A great example of their craftsmanship can be found within Cusco city. This stone is referred to as the 12-sided Inca stone. The Incas used several styles of stone work, this one emphasizes the carving of a rock to fit amongst other rocks perfectly without using mortar. The perfect alignment of the rocks is some of the most impressive stone work we have ever seen.
