“Would Your House Look This Good 800 Years From Now?”

Montezuma Castle National Monument one of the best preserved cliff dwellings in North America. This 20 room high-rise apartment, nestled into a towering limestone cliff, tells a story of ingenuity, survival and ultimately, prosperity in an unforgiving desert landscape. Visitors can marvel at this enduring legacy of the Sinagua culture and reveal a people surprisingly similar to ourselves. Approximately 350,000 people a year gaze through the the windows of the past during a visit to Montezuma Castle. Even 600 years after their departure, the legacy of the Sinagua people continues to inspire the imaginations of this and future generations.

We listened to an interpretive talk, which have us some great perspective on this amazing site. Great place to take kids-we spent about an hour there.

Fascinating piece of Native American history from before the 1400s in the middle of the Arizona desert. The cliff dwellings were amazing to see from the walkway, which was a short walk from the visitor center. The temperature was high so be sure to hydrate.

I was completely disappointed that this wasn’t a hike, like originally thought. It’s become one of those attractions that you drive up. Walk over. Take some pictures and leave. I was in an out in about 20 minutes.
