About Olvera Street, Los Angeles

Olvera Street is one of the oldest streets of Los Angeles. That is probably the reason why you would definitely find a lot of history attached to each nook and corner of this city.  It used to be a part of Chinatown in the past, but with passing time, its location had to be changed. The new location is a lot more lively and a lot more frequented by tourists and locals alike. There are 27 buildings of various ages still standing on Olvera Street, including the Avila Adobe (1818), the Pelanconi House (1857), and the Sepulveda House (1887). Sablo De Gloria is an important event held before Easter which is considered as a blessing of animals. Visit Olvera street and time travel with its tiny shops lined up, the colour and charm of an old town and catch a glimpse of old Spanish culture.

Olvera Street, Los Angeles Reviews - Write a Review

  • This is an awesome stop on a day in downtown LA. There's a lot of great Mexican food, Mexican music, dancing, and entertainment. And a lot of shops with Mexican art, crafts, and other items. This is a historical site a lot of old buildings and it's also a great place to meet a lot of really nice people you can do things like stop in at one of the leather shops there was a really nice gentleman in there actually creating something by hand as we were shopping. Highly recommended to spend a few hours through the shops and some super good Mexican food.

  • A must see if visiting Los Angeles. It gets crowded on the weekends especially during the summer. Try and visit on the week days so you can take your time and not be rushed. Their restaurants are all good and many have outside seating. Enjoy!

  • It's a great place. Has a tourist vibe to it. You can find very authentic Mexican items like clothes, shoes, toys, candies, instruments and more. Make sure to also visit the the buildings that have been there since the 1800s. You can still find original furnishings in one of the houses. Also check out their calendar for special events! Events can be anything from folklorico performers to Zumba instructors.

  • This is a great place to experience Los Angeles' Mexican American heritage. It's a bit touristy but that doesn't detract from his great this place is. Lots of great shops, stands, restaurants and history.

  • Very quaint tourist attraction. Close proximity to union station and Chinatown. You can't go wrong visiting this beautiful location. Plenty of food options and shops to buy beautiful items. Somewhat on the more expensive side though.
