Barrio Viejo Neighborhood

Tucson’s third oldest historic district, this neighborhood provides a sense of Tucson during the 1870s. Originally more extensive, its northern half was demolished during Urban Renewal in the late 1960s. It still has more Territorial-period adobe buildings than any other part of Tucson, and its intact Mexican-style urban streetscapes are unique in Arizona. The architecture is predominantly Sonoran, Transformed Sonoran, and Transitional styles with building fronts flush with the streets. The Carrillo K-5 Magnet School (1930) was designed in the Mission Revival Style by architect Merritt H. Starkweather. El Tiradito (“The Little Castaway”), is a 1940 update of a shrine established in the 1870s. Barrio Libre, along with neighboring Barrio El Hoyo and the tiny Barrio El Membrillo, are commonly known together as Barrio Viejo.
