Entering Montezuma Castle is like taking a step back into time. You can almost feel the presence of the ancient Sinagua as you ascend the ladders to its base. Walking through the doorway into the dark, musty interior you wonder about how the people spent their days. What sort of belongings decorated these rooms 700 years ago?
To access the Castle today, a series of ladders are needed to climb from one ledge to another, until you reach one of three entryways. Park archeologists, like these, enter the castle through this doorway on level two.
