Pueblo Cliff Dwellings at Manitou Springs, near Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA.
Ancient Pueblo People or Ancestral Puebloans were an ancient Native American culture centered on the present-day Four Corners area of the United States, comprising southern Utah, northern Arizona, northwest New Mexico, and southern Colorado. They lived in “houses” called pueblos in which they lifted up ladders when enemies attacked when they came near. The cultural group has often been referred to in archaeology as the Anasazi, although the term is not preferred by the modern Puebloan peoples. The word Anasazi is Navajo for “Ancient Ones” or “Ancient Enemy”.
The cliff dwellings are near to other popular tourist attractions, Pikes Peak and the Garden of the Gods.
