Consisting of forty-four acres, this region is a historical re-creation of a typical "Spanish" village representing the origins of Los Angeles. Although accurate in spirit, this area of downtown L.A. was originally an Italian enclave, not Mexican. East L.A. is more accurate concerning Hispanic culture...More

Nice place for a stroll, especially if you have children. Interesting historic adobe house / museum with many street vendors. A nice change of pace if you're looking for something different in LA.

Very close to Union Station, this was my starting point to tour LA- The garden area was beautiful and I'm a bit of a nerd, so I loved reading all of the historic plaques!

by metro, exit at Union Station and walk across the street to El Pueblo. About one hour would be good.

The best place to park is across the street at the post office, there is an area of the parking lot that is set aside for paid parking it's only a couple of bucks and is well worth it because there is an attendant there. Yes... More
