Los Duranes claims to be Albuquerque’s second oldest neighborhood. The Duranes acequia madre, or mother ditch, was established in 1706. In the mid-1790s, La Plaza de Señor San Jose de Los Duranes was the first of several small plazas along the Rio Grande north of Old Town. As with the other plazas, the proximity to the river was both a blessing and a curse. The flood of 1870 was exceptionally devastating. Yet the rural, agricultural character of the neighborhood remains today, and traditional settlement patterns persist, with multiple generations living in family compounds. A rapid influx of new residents and upscale developments don’t always fit the old patterns, but nonetheless seem reverent to the community’s traditional values. The route below winds along the narrow roads and ditch trails for a glimpse of what’s new and old in this dynamic, multifaceted community.
