Cross of the Martyrs

Located on Paseo de Peralta, between Otero Street and Hillside Avenue, north of E. Marcy St.

This short, but steep, walkway begins at a stairway located on Paseo de Peralta. As you climb the steps, read the plaques that provide an overview of the city's history. At the top of the hill, a white cross commemorates 21 Franciscan priests killed during the Pueblo Revolt of 1680. Here, you can take in spectacular views of the city and surrounding mountains.
