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.

  • Brilliant. The environment is stimulating. the history is inspiring. Live Street Music, dance performances and Street Food. Surround a Hidden Gem of tiny shops and authentic Hispanic heritage. The influences of the Italian Community are shown all throughout Southern California but here you will find a museum dedicated to them.

  • It's cute a bit nostalgic higher end flea market type setting. Good amount to see and shop for. Be sure to shop around, all vendors offer different pricing for like items. Beware of parking!!! Its super expensive and at least one attendant WILL BE RUDE!

  • An overwhelming plethora of smells, sounds and sights, this street embraces the soul of Mexican culture in the very heart of Los Angeles. Indulge in some authentic Mexican food, trail along the and satisfy your inner shopaholic at the local shops, stand and listen to the mariachis playing around you, take a tour of history through the Avila Adobe or just sit in, relax and take in the warmth of the vibrant atmosphere. This street offers something for everyone. No disappointment.

  • I go there mostly to eat. Great Mexican food in every stall, and cheap too! You can easily get a meal for under $10! I also like all the little shops, I bought a wallet there once and I want to go back for the Mexican-American flag.

  • The very best place in LA to get Mexican food and take in the sights and sounds of our cultured city! Los Angeles was built on diversity, let's celebrate it! There's a parking lot across the street, and I highly recommend stopping by Mr. Churro!
