Atrisco Travel Guide: 0 reviews and 1 photos

Most Albuquerqueans consider Atrisco to be a part of the larger city and in some sense that's true. But Atrisco as a community was founded in 1703 - three years before the loose collection of farms in the Rio Grande Valley was declared the villa of Albuquerque.

Today, as a neighborhood in the South Valley area of Albuquerque, Atrisco retains a distinctly Spanish flavor. In August and October 2003, the community will hold a series of fiestas celebrating its 300th birthday.
