See what educators are saying about El Pueblo's Digital Tours!
"Your teachings were so perfect for my class. We are also celebrating Indigenous Heritage Month in replacement of Thanksgiving, so your book presentation aligned perfectly with our unit."
"My students were engaged the entire time, and I feel that they learned so much from your lesson!"
"My students learned so much about Siqueiros, the mural, and about early Los Angeles that will most certainly complement what they are reading and studying. Several of them emailed to express their delight with the experience."
LAS ANGELITAS DEL PUEBLO offers free walking tours of El Pueblo de Los Angeles Historical Monument, home to the Pico House, Olvera Street, the Avila Adobe and other fascinating remnants of our city’s past. Las Angelitas docents guide visitors on an imaginative journey through the early history of Los Angeles from its beginnings as a Spanish farming community, to its heyday as a center of Californio culture during the Mexican rancho period, and, finally, to the changes that accompanied the U.S. takeover, putting Los Angeles on the path to becoming the American metropolis we know today.
Free walking tours of historic El Pueblo de Los Angeles are offered: Tuesday through Saturday 10:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., and 12:00 p.m.
Complete plaza tours (50-minutes duration) depart from the office on the hour; shorter tours, information or maps are provided between times, and as docents are available.
Walk-ins are welcome. Groups of ten or more, or groups with special needs, should make a reservation by contacting El Pueblo at (213) 628-1274.
** Tour requests must be submitted 10 business days prior to the requested tour date. Due to the high volume of tour requests, please allow up to 72 hours to receive a response. **
Tours start at the office of Las Angelitas del Pueblo on the south side of the Plaza, next to the historic Firehouse. Look for the green awning. On the day of your tour, meet your docent at the office of Las Angelitas del Pueblo a few minutes before your tour is scheduled to begin.
