HATUN RUMIYOC

INCA ROCA'S PALACE


Archaeological Remains of Hatunrumiyoc (Twelve-angle stone).- It is a wall constructed with the stone type "green diorite" and which is located outside the palace attributed to Inca Roca. The wall is admirable due to its polygonal architecture, whose front comprises almost the entire Hatunrumiyoc Street. One of its main features is that in the middle of the wall we can find the twelve-angle stone, which is famous because its corners and sides are perfectly assembled with the other stones.

Other Attractions
This wall has superposed sections of colonial and republican walls and, currently, it is part of the Archbishop's Palace - Art Museum. (Location: Hatunrumiyoc Street s/n, 2 blocks away from the Main Square).

Hatunrumiyoc is known because it contains the famous "twelve-angle stone". The palace was located at the corner of Hatunrumiyoc and Herrajes streets, which is currently occupied by the Archbishop's Palace and by a museum of colonial art that is open to the public.

In this place, the architects had to construct a cultivation terrace so as to level the ground, since this is where it starts intensifying its slope towards San Blas. It is worth observing this work given that they have recovered the east and south walls of the cultivation terrace thanks to the cleaning works.

Although most of the Herrajes front is lost, there is still a 190-meter perimeter surrounding the cultivation terrace, which shows the skills of the empire's engravers as well as their particular aesthetics.

The retaining wall constitutes a formidable sample of the polygonal stones assembly, which was uniquely used by the Incas to construct support walls. We can also note that, in the south wall, the polygonal assembly is not structural but a veneer that covers a coarse wall used as support.

The Twelve-Angle Stone
At the Hatunrumiyoc Street, it is possible to see an ancient Incan wall that was part of the palace of Inca Roca. This wall constitutes an admirable sample of the Incan work that included polishing and placing stone by stone. In this structure stands out the "Twelve-Angle Stone", which is famous due to the perfect work and the assembly of its corners.
