El Pueblo de Los Angeles

This is the birthplace of Los Angeles, where Spanish settlers descended in 1781 to establish a colony. When it was transferred to Mexican control in 1821, it remained the center of the Mexican community even after it eventually fell into U.S. hands. Today, El Pueblo de Los Angeles is a 44-acre district where visitors can see the original plaza, as well as 27 historic buildings including the Old Plaza Fire Station, the 19th century luxury hotel Pico House, and Avila Adobe, the city's oldest residence. But Olvera Street is the heart of El Pueblo, a bustling thoroughfare crammed with restaurants, cafes, live mariachi, and more Mexican souvenir stands and trinket stops that you can imagine. It's commercial and it's sanitized, but it's a fun place to walk around.
