Located close to Sedona it makes for a great day trip to go visit Montezuma Castle National Monument to see the history of Native Americans in Northern Arizona, specifically the Sinagua people. Enjoy the opportunity to travel back nearly a thousand years to a time when the Sinagua people inhabited this amazing five-story cliff dwelling. The dwelling was abandoned 100 years before Montezuma was even born and the dwelling is not really a castle but considered more like prehistoric high rise apartment complex. While visiting here you can take a relaxing scenic stroll on the self guided loop to be overwhelmed at the vision of the cliff dwelling high in the limestone cliffs. You can feel the presence of the people that inhabited the area as you walk along the pathway surrounded by giant old sycamore trees and the flowing Beaver Creek.
