Inca stonework

Inca stonework


It was staggering how the Incas managed to build such vast temples with stones that locked together so neatly and without any modern tools or cement. These temples have proved to be consistently earthquake-proof. Every guide we met would try and say that you could see cosmological animals in the shapes of the stones, but we think they were making it up.
