The Old City of Los Angeles, near the United Station (LA Union Station), is the birthplace of the city. Today, as the city continues to grow, this historic city has been preserved as a state historical park by the government. The rich Mexican flavor in the ancient city seems to bring visitors back to the ancient immigration boom. There are many museums here, and the La Plaze de Cultura y Artes museum, which records the history of Mexican-American immigration, is most popular among tourists. Visitors can also try authentic Mexican chips and marmalade on the Olvera St or pick up small gifts with Mexican flavor.
The 44-acre area represents the origins of Los Angeles as a typical "Spanish" village re-creation. While accurate, the area in downtown Los Angeles was originally an Italian enclave, not a Mexican one. East Los Angeles has more Hispanic culture but not very tour friendly. I gave this attraction only 3 stars because it was smaller, overpriced, touristy and it was hard to find parking nearby. The best option is to find a street parking a few blocks away from Chinatown which is also a popular tourist attraction. Best representative of old Spanish / Mexican culture. Available in Santiago, Baboa Park and Old Town Santiago.
It’s hard to believe that this is the place where Los Angeles started many years ago. I have a good feeling about this place. Many stalls selling things and drinks have been renovated. The food stores and toilets are very clean. I could have stayed here for a while. Time, but we are on the way to Los Angeles International Airport through the farmers market.
If the time is sufficient, I still suggest to visit the ancient city of Los Angeles, an old street, and an ancient story. Everything in Los Angeles starts from here. It retains the oldest buildings in Los Angeles so far. We are quite nostalgic. I still like it.
The ancient city of Los Angeles is a well-known relic in Los Angeles. It is totally worth visiting. Their staff are very good and the food is great. I usually go to the end until right across the square. There is a shop selling Taquito snacks.
