Entrance to El Pueblo de Los Angeles

El Pueblo de Los Angeles is a group of historic buildings in the heart of downtown Los Angeles that were restored and turned into a colorful Mexican marketplace in 1930. In 1953 the area was turned into a State of California historic park, and in 1989, management of the park was turned over to the City of Los Angeles. The city plans to restore more of the historic buildings in the future.

The main street and marketplace in El Pueblo de Los Angeles is Olvera Street, which begins at the large tree in the center of the photo. The building just beyond that tree is a church and beyond that is the Biscailuz Building, which houses the Institituto Cultural Mexicano.
