Among the many astonishing things that can be enjoyed and explored in the American Southwest is the Aztec Ruins National Monument.
This major Ancestral Puebloan ruins development is more than 1,000 years old and dates back to the 12th century. The location is central to the City of Aztec. This 27-acre site is located near the banks of the Animas River. Its historical, cultural and physical significance is so great that in 1987 it was designated with the prestigious title as a UNESCO World Heritage Site by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization.
Presently, the United States has only 23 UNESCO Sites, among which include the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone National Park, Carlsbad Caverns National Park and the Statue of Liberty.
The Ruins were primarily constructed using stone and mortar.
