Montezuma Castle National Monument protects some of the best-preserved cliff dwellings in the American Southwest, including Castle A, the ruin for which the Monument is best known. These dwellings were built by the Southern Sinagua archeological culture between A.D. 1100 and A.D. 1425. The Monument also manages Montezuma Well, located 11 miles away, and a number of surrounding smaller sites also of Sinaguan origin.
