Walpi, a Hopi village in northern Arizona, USA.

Walpi was established about 900 AD, has been continuously inhabited for over 1100 years, and is an excellent example of traditional Hopi stone architecture.

Situated on the south tip of First Mesa at an altitude of 6,200 feet, Walpi was relocated from the valley plain to its present site shortly after the Pueblo Revolt in 1680. Still inhabited today, the pueblo extends for some 640 feet along the narrow mesa top, which is at most 150 feet wide. The community is contained almost entirely in a single highly irregular building mass.
