En este lugar, el 25 de julio de 1531, se fundo la procer Ciudad de Queretaro. – Al conmemorarse el cuatrocientos cincuenta aniversario de tan relevante suceso, pueblo y gobierno, al erigir este monumento a sus egregios fundadores:
D. Fernando de Tapia (Conin), D. Nicolas de San Luis Montañez,
Fray Jacobo Daciano y D. Juan Sanchez de Alaniz,

Rinden también perenne veneración a todos aquellos hombres y mujeres illustres, que han forjado la grandeza espiritual y material de esta monumental e histórica ciudad.
Queretaro, Qro., 25 de julio de 1981.

La tradición dice que en esta loma del Sangremal se llevó a cabo la batalla que dio origen al pueblo de los indios de Santiago de Querétaro.
En la cúspide se levanta el espacio ceremonial sagrado de Templo de la Cruz, y en las faldas, los danzantes concheros chichimecas hacen su ofrenda desde tiempo inmemorial.
Para conservar y enaltecer esta milenaria tradición de fé, se rescató El Sangremal, revistiendo de dignidad este espacio ritual sagrado donde los concheros ofrecen su canto y danza a la Santa Cruz de los Milagros.
Este espacio se abre también para el uso y disfrute de todos: ciudadanos, vecinos y visitantes, ya que es parte fundamental del patrimonio cultural de Querétaro.

1531 · 1981
In this place, on July 25, 1531, the city of Queretaro was founded. - At the commemoration of the 450th anniversary of this important event, the people and their government erect this monument to its great founders:
Fernando de Tapia (Conin), Nicolas de San Luis Montáñez,
Friar Jacobo Daciano and Juan Sánchez de Alaniz,

and a perennial veneration is given to all those illustrious men and women who have forged the spiritual and material greatness of this monumental and historic city.
Querétaro, Querétaro, July 25, 1981.

Tradition says that on this hill known as Sangremal the battle was fought that gave origin to the town of the Indios de Santiago de Querétaro.
The sacred ceremonial space of the Temple of the Cross rises on the top of the hill, and its outskirts the Chichimeca concheros dancers make their offering here from time immemorial.
To preserve and extol this ancient tradition of faith, Sangremal Hill was rescued, revitalizing this sacred ritual space where the concheros dancers offer their song and dance to the Holy Cross of Miracles.
This space is open for the use and enjoyment of all: citizens, neighbors and visitors, as it is a fundamental part of the cultural heritage of Querétaro. March 21, 2014
