The facilities and grounds of Montezuma Castle National Monument and Montezuma Well are closed each year on December 25. Both sites will reopen and welcome visitors at 8:00 a.m. MST on December 26.
Montezuma Castle National Monument supports a highly diverse flora. In spite of the small acreages of the Castle and Well units, together they support 379 species of plants and about 15 plant associations. This is an impressive amount for a semiarid upland area with less than 12 inches of precipitation annually.
