Avila Abode

The Avila Abode, built in 1818, is said to be the oldest building standing in Los Angeles. Admission is free so take a look at the interior courtyard and then head inside to see the period furniture and decorations from the 1840s. you can also read the history of the Avila family in the courtyard.

At the beginning of Olvera Street is where you will find this lovely shaded plaza with benches where you can eat the food you got down the street or listen to music or do a little people watching.
