Old Fort Marcy of Santa Fe

Built by the U.S. Army in 1846 to protect the American presence in Santa Fe, the remains of this historic military fort still stand on a hill overlooking the town. The Cross of the Martyrs, at the top of a winding brick walkway from Paseo de Peralta near Otero Street, is a popular spot for capturing the evening sunset. The cross was erected in 1920 by the Knights of Columbus
