This is an ugly building which is supposed to be a Catholic church. There are little side chapels in rooms which are much more attractive than the main hall. Many of the old theaters are much lovelier than this heinous barn. It costs millions to...More

Awe...some...! The Architecture is simply breathtaking. Love it. Everything: the outside, the entrance (mural-size paintings, the sides (with all the images of saints up there looking towards the altar, the baptismal font at the back portion, St, John the Baptist's image on the entire back...More

Stained glass is awesome. Check out the catacombs and the stained glass mixed into the crypt area. The architecture is brutal, the church calls it contemporary. Just not my tastes. Still, if you are at the Broad museum it is only a short walk away.

We went to 8am mass at the cathedral. It was amazing! The acoustics, lighting, design were incredible. I typically favor older churches but could not help but appreciate the beauty. Definitely worth a visit!!

Modern to very modern, this cathedral has little visible similarities to the cathedrals of Europe, but then this is LA. Everything from the windows to the doors are major departures from tradition. The grounds are very nice and until you walk around, you don't realize...More

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants
