The Manitou Cliff Dwellings is a rare historical treasure. Preserved under a protective red sandstone overhang, authentic Anasazi cliff dwellings over 800 years old await you here. You are encouraged to explore the dwellings room by room using a self-guided tour. These fascinating architectural remnants are from an American Indian culture that roamed the Four Corners area of the Southwest from 1200 B.C. to 1300 A.D.
The Manitou Cliff Dwellings overlooks Manitou Springs, Colorado at the foot of Pikes Peak. Wander leisurely through the preserve and explore the fascinating architecture of the Ancient Puebloan people. This preserve was first open to the public in 1907 and represents some of the finest architecture of the Anasazi Culture throughout Colorado and New Mexico.
