Sheltered from the centuries, the Cliff Dwellings of Mesa Verde cling to sandstone ledges, as if clinging to another time. The stone villages serve as our best window into the world of the ancient puebloans. What happened here? Discover the fascinating story of Ancient America and the pueblo builders who made this remote, high plateau their home so long ago. Mesa Verde is not only one of America's most important parks preserving the prehistoric past, it is a United Nations World Heritage Site: a world park.
