Audio Commentary:

Across the street from the Presidio Museum is the Telles Block and Old Town Artisans. This block is defined by attached Sonoran row houses, with a large, shady courtyard on the interior. These structures have had a variety of incarnations, including homes during the late 1800s, a lumber yard, and a gas station. In addition, the blacksmith shop of the Spanish-era presidio was very likely located here. Now these old adobe buildings house several different regional artisans shops, as well as La Cocina Restaurant. Continue down Court Avenue to Alameda and cross the street.

Old Town Artisans and La Cocina are hidden gems in Tucson.
