Montezuma Well was our second stop and is about 5 miles north of the “Castle”. This “well” was formed by the collapse of an immense underground cavern. The springs that ran through the cavern now feed the well, and flow continuously up into the well and then exit through a series of man made ditches. This is how they could channel the water to their crops. All along the top and in the cliff sides you can find dwellings like those found at the larger cliffs of Montezuma Castle. Some of the large pueblos found here range from 50 rooms to one. It is estimated that anywhere from 150 to 200 Southern Sinagua people lived here in the periods between 1100 and 1400 AD.
