A magnificent and spiritually enlightening Roman Catholic parish, St. Vincent de Paul Church is nice place to stop and have a little break while exploring Los Angeles. Considered as the Historic-Cultural Monument of Los Angeles, this beautiful church was designed by architect Albert C. Martin, Sr. and was constructed in the 1920s. Located just off freeway 110 church is close to other attractions of south LA such as Science center, Memorial Coliseum, Staples Center. The location of St. Vincent de Paul Church in south Los Angeles was once considered to one of some of the wealthiest districts of the city.

 

Today, however only a few signs of this old glory remain. This church is built next to the famous Edward Doheny Mansion and Stimson House in LA.  Both buildings are well preserved and will be of interest to visit. There are also other architectural landmarks in the area, but generally speaking cautious should be exercised in south, south-eastern Los Angeles.

Although an architectural marvel, the St Vincent de Paul Church came into the limelight after it was featured in the movie with Arnold Schwarzenegger who later would become governor of California. So If you ever feel tired of driving on congested highways around downtown LA, take a break , walk around St. Vincent de Paul Church or simply relax on its grounds.
