Machu Picchu - 01: General View
Machu Picchu is divided into two key districts by a large grassy square. On the left are the Royal and Sacred areas where the Inca ruler and his court resided; on the right is the Secular area where the workers lived. The city’s temples and stairways spread out across a ridge that drops several hundred metres to the Willcamayu or Urubamba, the sacred river of the Incas.
