History of Los Angeles

Post  kosovohp on Wed Aug 25, 2010 9:11 am

The Los Angeles coastal area was first settled by the Tongva (or Gabrieleños) and Chumash Native American tribes thousands of years ago. The first Europeans arrived in 1542 in an expedition organized by the viceroy of New Spain and commanded by Juan Rodríguez Cabrillo, a Portuguese-born explorer who claimed the area of southern California for the Spanish Empire. However, he continued with his voyage up the coast and did not establish a settlement.[14] The next contact would not come until 227 years later, when Gaspar de Portolà, along with Franciscan missionary Juan Crespí, reached the present site of Los Angeles on August 2, 1769. Crespí noted that the site had the potential to be developed into a large settlement.

The city of Los Angeles has a fascinating history and is very rich in culture. A visited there years ago, and despite the "bad areas" that get a lot of attention, it is a very beautiful city. The hilly landscape, and amazing architecture make for a breathtaking experience indeed.
