Located in the oldest and most historic area of downtown Los Angeles, Olvera Street is home to much of the city’s cultural and historic heritage.

Nearly two million visitors stroll through Olvera Street every year.
Olvera Street is home to 27 examples of 19th-century architecture, including Avila Adobe, the oldest existing residence in Los Angeles. The street was designated as a California State Historic Landmark in 1953.

More of an alley than a street, Olvera is home to numerous shops, stalls, and sidewalk vendors. Many buildings maintain historical elements, and shopfronts feature vibrant colors that draw instant excitement and conversation from passersby.

Colorful pinatas, serapes, sombreros, and Mexican pottery hang from the exterior walls of shops, enticing visitors to step inside for a moment.
