The Mystery of the Ancient Cliff Palace in Mesa Verde

Not many people will have heard of this amazing site in Colorado USA, a site that is the largest cliff dwelling in North America and known as Cliff Palace. Cliff Palace was built by a people known as the Ancestral Pueblans, also known as the Anasazi, which means the ancient ones.

They were native to the Four Corners region of the United States, where the states of Utah, Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona neatly intersect.


It is estimated that around 100 to 125 people lived here between 1200 and 1300 AD and they accessed the site with the aid of retractable wooden ladders. It has 150 rooms, constructed out of natural sandstone, with the addition of wooden beams and mortar.


Cliff Palace is a truly incredible site displaying unique architecture and murals from the Ancestral Puebloan culture and although we do know a great deal about the people that lived here, there is one mystery about the site: why was it abandoned around 1300 AD?
