Montezuma Castle National Monument preserves a five-story, 20-room dwelling built sometime between 1100 and 1300 CE. It occupies a cliff recess 100 feet above the valley. Early American settlers marveled at the structure. They assumed that it was Aztec in origin, hence the name Montezuma Castle.
The Monument is located 50 miles south of Flagstaff, AZ and 90 miles north of Phoenix, AZ off I-17. A self-guided, 1/3-mile paved trail will lead you under the castle, through an Arizona sycamore grove, and next to Beaver Creek. A visitor center, with a museum and bookstore inside, and a picnic area are avaliable.
