Montezuma Castle National Monument. This cave dwelling, attributed to the Sinagua people, seems to have been built in the 13th century, about the time the French were building Notre Dame Cathedral. But by 1425, the Sinagua had vanished, and scientists are still trying to sort that out. Near Camp Verde, AZ....North of Phoenix.

Montezuma Castle. The well preserved cliff dwellings at Montezuma Castle National Monument. Arizona.

Montezuma Castle is one of a number of well-preserved ancient dwellings in north central Arizona, including the Wupatki, Tonto, Walnut Canyon, and Tuzigoot national monuments. It is probably the most spectacular; an imposing 20 room, 5-story structure built into a recess in a white limestone cliff about 70 feet above the ground.

I hate to admit it, but I was as impressed by Montezuma's Castle as I was by the Grand Canyon. It is THAT cool.
