Montezuma Castle is a Sinagua Ancestral Puebloan dwelling built in the early 12th century. It's 5 stories high, contains about 20 rooms, and is built into a cliff recess one hundred feet above the valley floor and Beaver Creek. President Theodore Roosevelt declared it a National Monument in 1906 to protect it from further looting and decay. I visited it very briefly and took only a few pictures.
