"El Pueblo - The party was on!!!" Olvera Street Tip by Jerelis
Olvera Street, Los Angeles: 5 reviews and 7 photos
The street preserves essential features of Los Angeles history. A triple row of bricks running diagonally across the street near the fountain denotes the course of the Zanja Madre (Mother Ditch), an early system of providing water from the Los Angeles River to the growing pueblo. On Olvera Street is L.A.'s oldest surviving residential building, Avila Adobe, which dates from 1818. El Pueblo de Los Angeles Historic Monument was established at the site in 1953.
We were very lucky that at the day we visited Old Plaza that Mexico was exactly 400 years became independent from Spain. The party was on!!!
El Pueblo is one of the easiest places in Los Angeles to reach. If you drive, five convenient parking lots await you. These can be entered from Main, Alameda or Los Angeles Streets.
If you come by bus, many different routes stop at El Pueblo. Take any bus that goes to the Plaza at Main, Los Angeles, Arcadia, Alameda or Cesar Chavez Streets. The Big Blue Bus from Santa Monica stops close by on Temple Street.
