Tuzigoot National Monument

Around 1000 AD to 1300 AD, the Sinagua built what is now known as Tuzigoot National Monument. From 1933-1934 the area was excavated by archeologists and a museum was built to house the artifacts.

Tuzigoot sits on a hill and has beautiful views from almost any point of the structure. I enjoyed visiting the museum and walking through the pueblo. It’s fascinating to think about the type of lives the Sinagua lived.
