Montezumas castle and Montezumas well are both part of the same national monument. The "castle" is a very well preserved cliff dwelling. It is only visible from the walkway and is easily accessed for those that have difficulty with mobility. There are certainly more interesting...More

Visited here in July so temps were extremely hot. The nice thing about this stop is that you can easily view the ruins from the Welcome Station and not have to walk for miles. An interesting and amazing piece of history.

Great place for a hike, no so much in July. Probably better in the fall, but it is Arizona and we know the summer temperatures are hot.

We traveled from Prescott and did not stop in Jerome, but we did the castle and the well in about 2-2.5 hours. And you cannot go up into the castle. Walking tours stopped when geologists deemed it unsafe.

We were there for about 30 minutes- it's only a 2 minute walk to get there and there are a few trails.
