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. This is where the residents of the city gathered for celebrations and other occasions. The view from this place is very scenic as it overlooks the Huayna Picchu peak.

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