"Historic Limestone Sinkhole"

Formed as a result of underground springs, the Montezuma Well is a limestone sinkhole found near Montezuma's Castle. Formerly a large underground cavern, this natural well is surrounded by soaring Indian cliff dwellings. Historically, the site has served as a refuge for a host of communities, right from prehistoric groups to the modern-age farmer. Given the high concentrations of carbon dioxide, arsenic, calcium and other chemicals, the well is home to extremely rare flora and fauna. Picturesque, historic and blessed with nature’s rarest gifts, the stunning Montezuma Well merits a visit by outdoor enthusiasts, nature lovers and photographers alike.
