Tonto National Monument

Tonto National Monument is located in southern Arizona and preserves the remains of ancient Native American rock dwellings. The Salado Indians came here about 700 years ago and settled in the two rock pockets of the Mazatzal Mountains, where they began to build their homes. Their puebla had several floors and thanks to an ingenious system, the individual rooms were connected. The stone houses were able to keep cool in summer and warm in winter.

Puebla, which was built of stone walls connected by mud and rubble, was literally crammed into rock niches. Some rooms even had wooden ceilings, allowing another floor to be built above them. The Salado Indians were able to produce beautiful utility polychrome ceramics and mats. These goods were very desirable and popular on most trade routes at the time.

The Indians inhabited this pueblo for about 300 years, but then, for unexplained reasons, they left it and went unknown. As the puebla was abandoned, it gradually began to decay, and only ruins have survived to this day. The last blow was dealt to them by treasure hunters who came here at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries and literally devastated the buildings.

However, the Salado Indians established small villages in these places long before they decided to build a pueblo. The villages were scattered mainly along the river Rio Salado, where the land was fertile and people could devote themselves to agriculture and farming. With their lifestyle, the Salado Indians followed the original inhabitants of southern Arizona, who were the Hohokam Indians. The word “Hohokam” could be translated as “those who left”.

Today, the remains of rock puebelles are protected by NM. There are two pueblo accessible to tourists, which can be reached from the Visitor Center. The center also houses a small museum, where you can enjoy the objects found here, get acquainted with Native American culture or watch a video document. You can go to both the smaller Lower Cliff Dwelling and the larger Upper Cliff Dwelling. However, a larger pueblo can only be visited during a regular organized guided tour, which takes about 4 hours.

In addition to the puebbles themselves, their surroundings are also very attractive, as there is a beautiful view of the Tonto Basin and Roosevelt Lake. The unique scenery is then kitschy to complete the cactus stands with really unmissable Saguaro cacti, which can be seen in a few meters.
