Explore one of the best preserved cliff dwellings in North America rich in cultural and natural history.
Montezuma Castle is actually one of the United State's first National Monuments. This five story 50 room cliff dwelling is one of the best preserved in all of North America. There is a short interpretive walk along the cliff in which one can see the many remnants of the previous inhabitants.
The Sinagua People inhabited this region over 600 years ago and it is thought that they lived along Beaver Creek in these dwellings for over 400 years.
