This is a nice little area near downtown across from union station where old LA first started. A great little piece of history that is still alive with shops, eateries and history. The only drawback is the area has a lot of homeless people around.

The plaza with the 3 important statues of the founders of El Pueblo de Los Angeles, is the oldest section of LA across from the Union Station. It is now populated by the multitude homeless and their belongings. The fountain is dry due to the drought and the park is dirty and foul smelling. There are colourful stalls all selling... More

I had fun walking around. Some neat things to buy are there if you look closely. I heard the Posadas at Easter in the nearby church is memorable.

We take our kids here every couple months for an afternoon of being tourists in our own town. Surprising that my kids haven't learned this part of Los Angeles history in school...

You can learn about history and the founding of what has become the megalopolis of LA by a group of 44 men, women and children, and have a fun few hours experiencing Mexican culture and cuisine. Some nice historical info and sites, all kinds of souvenirs and leather goods, and some fabulous food and music. It should be a must... More

A fascinating part of downtown Los Angeles that is an important part of the cities hIstory. There are lots of inexpensive places to get honest Mexican food in the commercial street where all the shops are. Halfway down that street on the southern side is a small museum dedicated to a David Siqueiros mural called America Tropical. It's easy to... More

A visit to El Pueblo and Olvera Street are really needed to try to get a handle on where this megalopolis of Los Angeles first sprung roots and it all began. Look at your map & see where LA extends today for reference, visit the museum, shop in Mexican good's stores & lunch on Tacos. Humble beginnings of a great... More

This is one of the best attractions of Los Angeles itself (not the suburbs). It is the original settlement of the city back when California was still Mexico. It is a great chance for Old Mexico style shopping and dinning as you walk down the narrow cobblestone street lined with vendors selling leather goods, toys and other "Made in Mexico"... More

Quite a bit of historical information about the foundations of the grand city of Los Angeles. This area of the city is historic. 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.. A very enjoyable experience.
