28 Mar 2009 - This national monument is about 50 miles south of Flagstaff, AZ. It was a convenient stop on our drive north, and well worth it , too. Montezuma Castle is a five story, 20 room structure built in the early 1100s. It was built in the cliff recess 100
feet above the valley floor. In one of the photos is a small scale model of the cliff dwelling that shows what the interior looked like.
