St. Vincent de Paul Roman Catholic Church

Built in 1925 as a gift from Edward L. Doheny; designed by Albert C. Martin in the Spanish baroque style, with a mix of California mission architecture. It has an unusual placement; at the request of the Dohenys, it was built at a 45 degree angle to the intersection of Adams Boulevard and Figueroa Street.This was to prevent commercial buildings from blocking the beauty of the church.

The building was designated an historic cultural monument in 1971.

    I've seen the dome and spire from the freeway, but never had a chance to see it close up! Now I need a trip to L.A. Thank you! At least now I know what intersection it's on! This is amazing!
