The oldest religious structure in Los Angeles, this 1822 building is also known as the Church of Our Lady the Queen of the Angels. Originally built as a simple adobe by Franciscan Padres with the labor of local Native American Indians, it took an additional 40 years to construct the whole church. This Catholic church now features some fine modern additions, including a tile mosaic of The Annunciation, created by artist Isabel Piczek in 1981.
