Gorgeous Cathedral

It's exactly that, gorgous, historic, and lots of stories surrounding. Be sure to take a walking tour that goes briefly over this spots history.

The outside is gorgeous, and the décor, statues, art, etc., within the Cathedral makes it one of a kind--not to mention the oldest. A must see for any Christian or fan of architecture.

Enjoyed the docent guided tour of this landmark. The head stones of famous locals inside gave extra historical impact.

Historically interesting. Lovely church. My husband went to Mass there. The so-called jazz players on Jackson Square were loud, persistent and annoying which colored everything we saw in the Cathedral area.

It is free to walk in. You should take a walk inside. It was beautiful for its stained glasses and ceiling pictures.

It was a wonderful event in one of the beautiful structures in the South. The history of the Church is great and the acoustic are excellent. I would suggest any visit to New Orleans includes coming the the Cathedral.
