Los Angeles Sights



Avila Adobe Review

This residence was built as an 18-room home in 1818; today only a seven-room wing still stands. The remains have been converted to a museum space representing the oldest residential building still standing in Los Angeles. This graceful, simple structure features 3-foot-thick walls made of adobe brick over cottonwood timbers, a traditional interior courtyard, and 1840s-era furnishings. Open daily 9–4.
