Montezuma Castle National Monument, USA

Montezuma Castle is near the top of a Verde Valley cliff and is one of the best preserved cliff dwellings in North America. Before 1125, the Sinagua lived on the hills nearby and sustained themselves on agriculture dependent on rain. After 1125, the Sinagua settled in the Verde Valley and used irrigation systems left by the Hohokam.[2] The last known record of Sinagua occupation for any sites are for Montezuma Castle National Monument around 1425 AD.
