NileGuide Expert Says:
Take this 40-minute detour from Sedona and drive right up to the monument. Because it sits high on the cliff, this ancient dwelling is especially beautiful at sunset and sunrise.
- Visit the ruins of a once-prosperous community of the ancient Sinagua. One of the best-preserved cliff dwellings in North America, the structure boasts five stories and 20 rooms. Inhabited more than 600 years ago, much of the building is still intact. The best time of the year to visit is December and January. Binoculars would be beneficial for a closer view. Walkways are provided and are wheelchair-accessible. Montezuma's Castle and visitor center is located off I-17 at exit 289. Entrance fees are minimal for adults, free for children 16 and under. Allow no less than one hour for your visit.
