Visit the largest cliff dwelling of the Mesa Verde National Park, Cliff Palace. Many archeologists agree that the building, which once housed approximately 100 people, had special significance for the Mesa Verde people. For access to the site, you must be with a ranger guide. Book a tour at the visitor center, where you can also learn about the construction of the dwelling and the people who lived there. You'll see inside a complex series of halls, rooms, and towers that are protected from the sun by the canyon. You can get a view of the entire dwelling from Cliff Palace Loop Road.
