We went to this cemetery on a cool, rainy day. We took the Riverfront trolley from near the convention center to the French Market stop to shorten our hike, but it was still a decent walk, probably another 20 minutes from the French Market. If you walk, just be aware that the neighborhood is very different from the French Quarter.... More

I have lived in NOLA for 30 years and this is my favorite cemetary---many tombs, stations of the cross, and two chapels. I have never had any trouble in this neighborhood but one must be alert to the surroundings.

This was the cemetery we stopped out while on our city tour. It isn't well known like some of the other cemeteries, but it was still amazing to see! The above ground tombs/cemetery was something I was very much looking forward to see while in New Orleans.

This is a small cemetary with a great history. A quick view of New Orleans cemetaries. The older crypts are particularly interesting.

This is a wonderful cematary - I have visited many times. It is a located eleven blocks from Esplanade Avenue, which divides the French Quarter and the Faubourg Marigny. The grounds and chapel are open every day from 7am - 3pm. St Roch - has a collection of interesting curios left by supplicants. St Roch Avenue itself is a shady... More

We went here with a small group on a bike tour with Confederacy of Cruisers (highly recommended!) and it's definitely interesting. Small chapel has tiny room to right of altar with old leg braces, plaster casts of arms and other body parts placed in thanks for healing after praying to St Roch. The above ground tombs are re-used over and... More

St. Roch's is similar to St. Louis #1 Cemetary, but is not within walking distance of the quarter. The cemetary is a bit less decrepit than others and appears to have far fewer visitors. The cemetary is surrounded by a high white wall and is a maze of whitewashed tombs packed closely together. We were the only ones there on... More
