Our Lady Queen of the Angels. LA was a village camped on the Q On the banks of the LA River, when it had water. Olvera street was the main drag. It was Californio, which is distinct from Mexican. Pico, Figueroa were giants and it's worth seeing. It is tragic that our history has been reduced to curio stalls and... More

This area of Los Angeles is historic. The first settlers in this area were Spanish and Mexican and the buildings reflect this. There is a central area where there were several operatic singers entertaining the public. There are lots of stalls selling all sorts of clothes and ornaments etc. and ice cream and snacks.

There was a a lot of Mexican dancing on the plaza. There are a lot of little shops that sell several types of Mexican souvenirs from blankets... More

I was at LA Union with 3 hours to kill before heading to Anaheim by rail. Thanks to Trip Advisor I happened upon this historic area and my time was nicely filled. There are a number of exhibitions available for FREE viewing and I have posted a few photographs to show how these early land settlers lived. Well worth spending... More

My cousin married a Mexicana and they brought me here because they wanted me to taste the most "Mexican" spot in LA before I went to Mexico city. They toured me around. They had shops with Our Lady of Guadalupe figurines, Cuahtemoc, dia de los muertos shirts, ponchos, lucha libre masks and all those beautiful and colorful sombreros. I was... More

Very nice place, the mexican district of LA. A Genuine, colored and authentic square near Downtown. A good spot to remember the latin roots of the city.

We didn't get to see the mural as we got there after 3, that would have been cool, but the house and the whole area was great nonetheless

I am a native of Los Angeles so I can frequent this place as often as I like (when I am in town), lol. I recommend this place to all who visit Los Angeles.
