The present invention relates to a masonry unit of constant cross-section and to the interlocking system formed when the units are arranged by means of a mechanically locking assembly, such that each unit is locked in position and cannot be rotated or moved in any direction, without any mortar or other additional element being required. The proposed interlocking system only requires a single basic unit to form the arrangement, thus making the building process easier. The proposed interlocking system can be authorised for use in any seismic hazard zone for constructing buildings with one or more floors or for reinforcing existing structures, or for erecting partition walls in buildings with more than two storeys. The proposed arrangement achieves an improved structural performance of the interlocking system, since it interrupts the continuity of the horizontal and/or vertical joints between the contact zones of the units.
