The site of the martyrdom of twenty six individuals later to be declared saints is an place of deep interest for the Christians who secretly held onto their religion despite the one-time national oppression of the faith. The twenty six were crucified in 1597 after a forced march and the museum next to the site displays goods related to Christianity from the period.
