About the neighborhood:
This area is convenient to most everything in Tucson. The revitalized downtown is in walking distance -- museums, shops, restaurants, and bars are very close and the 4th Avenue business district is about a mile away. The University of Arizona is within two miles, and the Desert Museum and Saguaro National Monument are a 20 minute drive. I-10 is easily accessed - head northwest toward Phoenix and Flagstaff or southeast to Bisbee, Tombstone, and Sonoita. Bird watching, hiking and other outdoor activities are easily found nearby.
Barrio Viejo is rich with adobe-style architecture. Many homes display southwestern colors of blue, purple, and orange. The Mexican and Spanish influence is abundant in the neighborhood. With protruding windowsills and recessed doors, the charm comes through in this unique neighborhood.
The name, Barrio Viejo, means “Old Neighborhood.” and it dates back to the 1880's It is considered one of the most colorful neighborhoods in Tucson because of the vibrant adobe homes and many artistic murals that reflect the Mexican and Spanish influence. The neighborhood is home to such landmarks as El Tiradito Shrine, where residents and visitors go to a crumbling wall to leave slips of paper inscribed with prayers and messages in the wall’s cracks. The area is yet another must-see Tucson neighborhood that reflects the desert southwest eclectic theme so commonplace in Arizona.
