Few visitor attractions in the United States offer the same mystery as Casa Grande Ruins National Monument. A relic of a civilization that left no written language behind, Americans have been puzzled by its purpose since it became the country’s first prehistoric and cultural reserve in 1892.

The structure stands almost defiantly in the Arizona desert, the same colour as the red ground, presenting itself strikingly against the wide blue sky. Although there are few answers to be given concerning why the construction was built or what it was used for, those questions only lend to the mystery of the site and its magnetic allure.
