This page https://store.arduino.cc/usa/mega-2560-r3 contains the following image under the Documentation section.

pic from mega 2560 documentation

It shows digital pins 10 to 13 with labels SS, MOSI, MISO, and SCK. However, this page says that those are at pins 50 to 53 https://www.arduino.cc/en/reference/SPI.

Which page is correct?

    check the schematic ... the top picture is incorrect ... PB4 to PB7 are not SPI pins ... ATmega2560 datasheet confirms that PB0 to PB3 are SPI pins ... these are pins 50 to 53 on the Arduino board
