Central Plaza at Machu Picchu

Central Plaza
The image shows a view of the Central Plaza at the Machu Picchu Citadel located near Cuzco, Peru. The Central Plaza is equivalent to the central square of a modern city.

The Central Plaza is where the residents of the city gathered for celebrations and other occasions. As you can see from the image, the view from this place is very scenic as it overlooks the Huayna Picchu peak.

The Sacred Plaza is located above the Central Plaza, and both the plazas are connected through steps. The ruins of the prisons and residential quarters of the ordinary people are located below the Central Plaza.
