Very photographic, near the river so you would include it in your walk of the city. Close to markets...Would recommend a visit.

The popular St. Louis Church is an iconic background of Jackson Square. Beautiful architecture, plenty of shops and restaurants, museums and lots of art. From paintings and drawings to statues and live music.

Really enjoyed walking around here. Great atmosphere with artists, musicians and street performers at every corner. It's beautiful with the church and the cabildo/presbytere flanking it. A must see if you're in NOLA.

Such a great place. Awesome architecture and a clean, well maintained area. There are also a number of palmists, tarot card readers and street artists in the area, which add to the charm. Great photo opportunities too!

The steam boat trip was very relaxing which is great to enjoy after the many visits to so many places to see. Cafe Du Monde is a must to experience. The cathedral somewhat leaves you in good spirit. Lots of tarot... More
