I do not recommend. It is off the beaten path and a bit strange. Recommend reading the story behind the shrine before visiting.

I suppose the story behind this shrine is interesting, but it's really no different than any other shine located in Hispanic neighborhoods. If you're religious and do this type of thing then it's likely great. For someone who is not religious, visiting this site is pretty useless. It's not in a nice part of town or even in a nice park. Just a dirty part of the street next to a restaurant.

A cool little place tucked away in a neighborhood. The sentiments here are lovely and it has a cool history (there is a plaque that explains). Take a few quiet moments here, and perhaps leave a message that you can tuck into the wall.

This is a very small but special little area that is part of the National Registry and that locals still use for prayer and wishes. If you don't particularly appreciate religious shrines with historical significance, you could be underwhelmed. It's small and simple. But if you appreciate local religious culture you will probably appreciate this stop. Be sure to check out the plaque to read the cool backstory.

Interesting little shrine in the Barrio of Tucson. Not a lot to see, but it is a historic site and obviously well visited by the locals. There are numerous notes tucked into holes and cracks in the wall.

This is the only shrine in the US that recognizes a sinner...worth the trip..you can place a note in the wall for any special intentions. Bring candles to light for your loved ones..very sweet!

Like the title says, this little shrine is good to kill a few minutes and feel a quiet vibe in the center of Tucson. Interesting, although vague, backstory to this place. It's free to enter and the café right next to it smells so good.

The title sounds morbid but that is the feeling I got when I went to El Tiradito. It is a lovely little area next to a café located in a neighborhood. It was littered with candles, flowers, prayer beads, and statues. The walls are crammed with small slips of paper upon which people have brought their wishes to be fulfilled by some religious or mystical power. The place is great for a photo opportunity if you enjoy photography, but not worth the drive if it is out of your way.

I did enjoy it and I would go back again for the opportunity to take more photos.

A little shrine off the beaten path with an interesting backstory. I love seeing places like this, as I feel it gives me a better understanding of my surroundings, in this case Old Tucson.

Stopped here to follow the tradition of wishing love to a loved one and we left our names in a hole with our love wish. Pretty cool site, open to public 24/7. A must for a good leg stretch after a long drive. Tells an old story of how Tuscon came to be.
