"Montezumas Castle" Arizona Off The Beaten Path Tip by roamer61

Arizona Off The Beaten Path: 102 reviews and 134 photos


An interesting site few travellers know about is Montezumas Castle. It is a 12th Century Anasazi Cliff Dwelling located 50 miles south via I-17 and Middle Verde Rd. It gets its name from early explorers who thought it was Aztec in origin. One of the structures is very well preserved and is worth a detour for anyone interested in the history of the southwest.
