Aztec Ruins National Monument covers an area of 318 acres (1.3 km2) and protects ruins of the Anasazi settlement that was created between 11th and 13th centuries. Its name is derived from a mistaken romantic belief that it belonged to the Aztec tribes. Early European settlers that initially stumbled on the ruins of the settlement assumed that it belonged to the Aztec civilization that spread their great empire to the American Southwest. Aztec Ruins were added to the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites.
