Olvera street is the oldest part of the City of Los Angeles.  The Mexican music you hear while strolling through it, is typical for the history and origin of Los Angeles.  It all started out as Wine street and was extended and renamed in 1877 as Olvera street. For more information and history of Olvera street go to: http://www.olvera-street.com/the_history.html

Besides Olvera street you can also visit LA's first Fire Station, "Fire House Nr. 1" and the Mexican Cultural Institute.
