What people are saying:

Olvera Street is a Mexican street, formerly known as the "Angel Promenade". It belongs to a small street adjacent to the square. It is said to be the original street in Los Angeles. It still has the legacy of Mexico. The length is less than 1,000 yards. There are many Mexican restaurants, rare merchandise shops and vendors on both sides of the brick and stone road where vehicles are prohibited. The residents are mostly Mexican descendants and still wear Spanish clothing. In addition to restaurants and small shops, the most worth seeing of Old Street is the oldest existing building in Los Angeles in the middle of the old street-one of the earliest houses built by Spanish immigrants who came to settle here. It is a home built by wealthy farmer Francisco Avila in 1818.

Additional Information


Years ago, one of the summer rituals for L.A. children was a new pair of huaraches from Olvera Street and maybe some Mexican jumping beans. Nowadays those rituals are a year-round treat on this cobblestone street, which is a block-long cornucopia of traditional clothing and accessories, Mexican art, giftwares, leather goods, novelties and restaurants. There is also a Visitors Center where tourists can appreciate the complimentary screening of a film which depicts early life in Los Angeles. Olvera Street was created in the '30s and comprises the area known as the El Pueblo de Los Angeles Historic Monument, which is the site of the city's beginnings.
