Tuzigoot National Monument

Tuzigoot National Monument Review

It isn't as well preserved as Montezuma Castle, but Tuzigoot National Monument is more impressive in scope. Tuzigoot is another complex of the Sinagua people, who lived on this land overlooking the Verde Valley from about AD 1000 to 1400. The pueblo, constructed of limestone and sandstone blocks, once rose three stories and incorporated 110 rooms. Inhabitants were skilled dry farmers and traded with peoples hundreds of miles away. Implements used for food preparation, as well as jewelry, weapons, and farming tools excavated from the site, are displayed in the visitor center. Within the site, you can step into a reconstructed room.
