Today the El Pueblo is a department of the City of Los Angeles, and has become a living museum that continues to fulfill its unique role as the historic and symbolic heart of the city, reflecting the Native American, African American, Spanish, Anglo, Mexican, Chinese, Italian and French cultures that contributed to its early history. Of the monument’s twenty-seven historic buildings, eleven are open to the public as businesses or have been restored as museums. The sense of history that the place holds can make it a great proposal spot as you and your loved one will begin creating your own history with the exchange of diamond jewelry.
