More a quick climb than a religious shrine, the Cross of the Martyrs was erected to commemorate the 21 Franciscan friars who lost their lives in the Pueblo Revolt of 1680. Historic plaques explain 400 years of Santa Fe history, and the view from the top really makes you appreciate those adobe-only laws.
