  • The Cross of the Martyrs is an extension of the Fort Marcy Park area, and a fun way to take in some of the local history at the various stations/plaques. The monument provides beautiful views of SF an...  more »

  • I saw the cross from down below, so we drove the neighborhoods until we found the entrance at the top. The gates are open from 8:00 AM to 10:00 PM daily. There are a dozen or so slots for parking. You...  more »

  • Santa Fe doesn't really lend itself to great views from above but it's definitely interesting to see. Fairly easy walk up and there are (somewhat difficult to read) signs on the way up walking you through the history of Santa Fe. There's supposedly the ruins of Fort Marcy nearby but there's almost nothing left to see. The cross itself is loud in the wind and not exactly photogenic up close.
  • Must see! Beautiful views and some interesting history about Santa Fe and the surrounding area. Hike is not difficult and is even easier if you approach from the top side off of Prince Ave.
  • This walk was nice. A cell phone tower is smack in the middle of the view, which is annoying. It is a quick walk from town and worth your time.
  • Stunning sunset views!
  • Nice view of the surroundings. While going up you can learn quite a bit about the history of Santa Fe. Unfortunately there is o much left of fort macey.

Where to stay in Santa Fe

Though the downtown area contains most of Santa Fe's finest hotels, you can find plenty of equally comfortable inns and motels just outside this busy central district. Remember also that most of the city's centrally located hotels raise their prices during the height of the tourist season, so it is essential to look for deals and make reservations well in advance. To experience the true spirit of outdoor New Mexico while on holiday, consider sleeping under the stars at a campground just a short drive from Santa Fe's major urban attractions.
