“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.
Not much of a hike. Its a quick stop to somewhere else.
gorgeous! worth the $5 per person entry fee. brought our dog, nice paved trail, small hike, very easy. two thumbs up!
Only open 8 to 5. Will try to see it some other time.
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.
Historically amazing. If you want a hike, this isn’t for you. This is an easily accessible paved walkway to view the ruins. It can be a quick stop that won’t leave you disappointed.
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.
Easy to get to and a very short walk from the visitor center. Can see it in short time. Well worth the stop!!!
You can't get near the ruins but its a great place to hike
This was great! Yes, you need to confirm the hours they are open, and it cost $10 per adult to enter. The walk from the visitor center was a quick 1/3 mile. A tour guide was stationed offering explanations and nice info plaques. Returned to the center where there is a little museum and a nice gift shop. Loved it!
Amazing to see. easy walking path with stroller plenty of places to sit in the shade. Very hot! Was not used to the heat but was a Nice short stop.
