El Segundo Barrio Walking Tour

Reserve your spot for this guided walking tour through one of El Paso’s oldest neighborhoods.

El Segundo Barrio was one of the main ports of entry into the United States from Mexico for many years, and became known as the “other Ellis Island” as a result. It is well known for its murals and cultural character. In 2016, the area was placed on the Most Endangered Places in Texas list compiled by Preservation Texas.

Tour Duration: 90 Minutes.
