Los Angeles officially the City of Los Angeles, is the largest city in the U.S. state of California. With an estimated population of nearly four million people, it is the country's second most populous city (after New York City) and it covers 1,210 km². Los Angeles is known for its Mediterranean climate, ethnic diversity, Hollywood entertainment industry, and its sprawling metropolis. It lies in a basin in Southern California, adjacent to the Pacific Ocean, with mountains as high as 3,000 m, and deserts.
Home to the Chumash and Tongva (Native American tribes), Los Angeles was claimed by Juan Rodríguez Cabrillo for Spain in 1542. The city was founded on September 4, 1781, by Spanish governor Felipe de Neve. It became a part of Mexico in 1821 but it became as a part of the United States in 1848. The discovery of oil in the 1890s brought rapid growth to the city.
