Overview

During the 1680 Pueblo Revolt, 21 Franciscan Friars died in the fight between the natives and the Spanish. A single white cross sits on a terraced hill overlooking Santa Fe to honor those holy men. The path leading up to the cross is paved and has handrails. Plaques describing the surrounding sights dot the pathways. Come for a quiet walk during a spectacular sunset; the vista is breathtaking.
