Then we walk towards the Plaza de Armas the heart of Cusco from the time of the Incas, passing through the lovely Arch of Santa Clara. We will stop by the fountain surrounded by beautiful flowers and benches. Walk through Calle Triunfo to the street Rumiyoq Hatun, also known as the Calle Roca Mayor to view the grand stone of twelve angles that is considered one of the most unique in the world.
