Barrio Viejo Neighborhood Tucson

Updated: Sep 19, 2023

Book our tour that includes the Barrio Viejo neighborhood Tucson for a Guided Walk of Tucson's Sonoran Row Houses! Built right up to the sidewalk, these thick walled adobe structures feature a unique historic architectural design that show how people adapted building styles for the harsh Sonoran Desert climate! Tucson's Barrio Viejo was primarily built by Mexican and Chinese immigrants who arrived to work on the two railroads that were built through Tucson. This lively neighborhood was dotted with corner groceries and restaurants and became a cultural center for the city. Join us on our guided walking tour of the Historic Barrio to visit the original water source for the city, see a shrine to a sinner, walk past a historic Spanish Language Theater, visit art galleries and learn the lively stories of Tucson's Barrio Neighborhoods!
