Be sure and go to the Cabildo Museum next door, people watch in the park, and Cafe Dumonde a block across the park...

The St. Louis Cathedral is truly one of NOLA's landmarks! It is the oldest Catholic Cathedral in continual use in the USA. You do not have to be Catholic to appreciate it.

The church has obvious history. The inside is just beautiful - a must to visit. It's free but it seems everyone gave some sort of donation. Also at one of the corners has a lamp post marking it the area of closest of government, church, and bar. During the night you need to check out the back and gaze upon... More

On a hot day, a lot of people file through for the AC. But it's a beautiful church with lots of details to see. The stations of the cross are in French, an illuminated bible in the back. When I go, I say a little prayer and make a donation! Beautiful church!

Just stepped inside to view. It was beautiful and no matter what your religion, I would recommend. Take a few minutes to take it all in.

I'm not a very religious person, but I wanted to check this out, mostly for the history of it. This is the oldest cathedral in the country and it's beautiful inside. Very well kept and maintained and in the heart of Jackson Square, great thing to do just to say you've done it whether you're religious or not.

This was a very beautiful Cathedral to visit, I couldn't believe how big it was inside. Definitely worth going to look at or even going to a mass if you are catholic.
