Photos: Miles @ Olvera Street

Part 2 of 3: the second part of our day was a stop @ Olvera Street. This was a very very sentimental stop for me. I spent many Saturdays @ Olvera Street with my Aunt Liz, my mom, & my grandparents. My mom was baptized in a historic church here. Whenever anyone asks where to go in LA, Olvera Street is @ the top of the list.

“Olvera Street is in the oldest part of Downtown Los Angeles, California, and is part of the E Pueblo de Los Angeles Historic Monument. Many Latinos refer to it as “La Placita Olvera.” Circa 1911 it was described as Sonora Town. Having started as a short lane, Wine Street, it was extended and renamed in honor of Agustín Olvera, a prominent local judge, in 1877. There are 27 historic buildings lining Olvera Street ncluding the Avila Adobe, the Pelanconi House and the Sepulveda House. In 1930, it was converted to a colorful Mexican marketplace.”
