More about Montezuma Well…
The legacy of the Sinagua culture surrounds you during a visit to Montezuma Well. Visitors to the well often let their minds wonder off to a time long ago as they observe the cliff dwellings perched along the rim. Formed long ago by the collapse of a limestone cavern, over one million gallons of water a day flow continuously into the Well. This constant supply of warm, fresh water provides an aquatic habitat like no other in the world, and has served as an oasis for wildlife and humans for thousands of years. Montezuma Well welcomes you to explore, but please remember that the well is considered sacred by many local tribes, show respect for the environment.
All of us at the Inn of Sedona highly suggest taking a day trip and explore both Montezuma Castle National Monument & Montezuma Well.
