Hundreds of participants make their way through the historic streets from the cathedral to the Cross of the Martyrs, where luminarias light the way.

Perhaps the most visually stunning event is the final event of the Fiesta. A candlelight procession follows a Mass of Thanksgiving at the Cathedral Basilica of Saint Francis of Assisi. Hundreds of participants make their way through the historic downtown streets from the cathedral and up the hill to the Cross of the Martyrs, where luminarias, a small festival or vigil bonfire, dot the hill and light the way of participants. The lights from the luminarias and twinkling candles are a sight to be seen.

Cross of the Martyrs is located on Paseo de Peralta between Otero St. and Hillside Ave.

Candelight Procession to Cross of the Martyrs The ceremony at the Cross of the Martyrs commemorates the death of 21 Franciscan friars and numerous Spanish colonists during the Pueblo Revolt of 1680. It was dedicated during Santa Fe Fiesta of 1920.
