Montezuma Castle National Monument
Nestling in a natural alcove 98ft above the ground, these ruins are very well preserved. This Sinaguan village built in the 12C originally comprised 45 rooms arranged over six floors. Although visitors can approach the site from a footpath, the site itself is closed to the public. The water of nearby Beaver Creek allowed the Native Americans who lived here to irrigate their crops. A few miles away, other Sinaguan ruins can be seen at Montezuma Well.
