Here's another "castle" - this one called "A" by the archeologists who excavated it in the 1930s.

Like neighboring Montezuma Castle, Castle A was occupied by Sinagua farmers between A.D. 1200 and 1450. However, with 45 rooms and an estimated occupancy of 100, it was much larger. It's not nearly as well preserved, because sometime before the Sinaguas' mysterious disappearance in the late 1400s a fire destroyed almost all interior features. All you can see today are parts of a few collapsed walls and a partially reconstructed foundation.
