The cathedral is bautiful. If you like old architecture and art I would reccomend visiting. The cathdral is located in Jackson Square right in the center of the French Quarter.

It was open when we were there and I wanted my children to see this Cathedral. We are not Catholic but I think it is important to expose them to different choices in life. This is so beautiful and an awesome experience for me and my children. Regardless of beliefs I would take a few minutes just to experience it.

From the moment you step inside you can do nothing but stare. I was completly overwhelmed by the enormity of it. From the stained glass windows and painting on the ceiling to the alters and then some. This is a must see!

Stopped in to see this stunning church will touring New Orleans. At the time, mass was going on, so we didn't linger long but it was beautiful to step in and see this amazing cathedral. There is also a small gift shop on site where you can purchase small sourveniers or photos of the cathedral and candles.

I've toured many, many cathedrals and I found this one to be well worth the visit. The architecture is impressive and so is the history. Visiting this cathedral gives you a good sense of New Orlean's French heritage. The Cathedral is located by a beautiful city park and is flanked by the hub-bub and all of the eccentricity that makes... More

This is cathedral is not to be missed in your visit to the French Quarter. It takes up very little time but offers a chance to check out some neat architecture. Jackson Square is situated right in front of it so be sure give that a view as well.

We attended the Cresent City Choral Festival on 6/29/15. The cathedral is amazing inside and out. Truly an architectural feat!

We did not actually go into the Catherdral but did hang around outside to watch the street musicians who were for the most part very good.
