Los Angeles, California is known as “The City of Angels,” as the name literally means “the angels” in Spanish. The settlement that became Los Angeles was established in 1781 by a group of 44 people from Mexico. It was originally named “El Pueblo de Nuestra Señora la Reina de los Ángeles de Rio de Porciúncula,” which translates in English to “The Town of Our Lady the Queen of the Angels of Porciúncula.” The name was later shortened for obvious reasons.
Today, within the city limit the population nears 4 million, and Los Angeles is the second most populous city in the U.S., exceeded only by New York City. The City of Angels is the home to Hollywood, a major center for world entertainment, and the cultural, financial and commercial center of Southern California. Among numerous other attractions, visitors to the Los Angeles area can visit attractions such as Disneyland, Universal Studios, the Griffith Observatory, and the legendary Hollywood Boulevard and Hollywood sign.
