Barrio Histórico in Tucson, Arizona can be loosely translated into the historical area, district or neighborhood. It is also known as Barrio Libre... free neighborhood and Barrio Viejo... old neighborhood. It is a historic neighborhood dating back to the nineteenth century with a very distinct old-world Mexican lavor. Many of the original buildings have been restored, yet some still sit with crumbling walls. I was immediately attracted to the thick adobe walls and doors rich in texture and color. I hope that the photographs below capture the beauty of this unique urban environment.
