A New Orleans cemetery is a must do while visiting the Big Easy. This cemetery is very old and many tombs are in disrepair, but it is very interesting to hear the reasoning of the above ground burials, the process, and see the history.

Lovely place to walk around on a bright sunny day. The tombs were very interesting and all above ground for obvious reasons. Some are a little worn by time or damaged by Katrina, but on the whole most are in a good state of repair. Lots of different features and the range of family names reflects the nationalities of early... More

Wonderful old cemetery in the Garden district. It is not maintained as well as St Louis #1 but is unique in its own way. Go early they close at 3:30, wished I would have known this.

This is a very cool cemetary. Sad to see tombs torn up from Katrina but city has restored as much as possible. This is the 1st cemetery in New Orleans. Lots of the movies and TV shows have been shot here.

When I told my mother I would be touring Lafayette Cemetery with a group from the church, she could not understand why anyone would want to do such a thing. But I knew that tour guide would be interesting and full of fun facts. We met at the entrance on Washington Street (across from Commander's Place Restaurant) and our guide... More

We decided to just walk through one of the cemeteries in New Orleans rather than going on a tour as we had other activities that we wanted to do. We were in the Garden District and went through Lafayette No. 1. It was indeed very interesting and very sad as well. There is so much decay and damage which appears... More

If you have never been to one of the above ground cemeteries in New Orleans choose this one. It is in the garden district just a block or so off of the St Charles street car line. You will se a great variety of tombs. Read the dates to get an idea of some of the history of the place.... More

We were lucky to run into Marcus, who does tours for tips in the cemetery. He was great and provided us with great information. The cemetery does need some maintenance, but it is so worth a visit. It was nice to learn about the way in which they manage the tombs over time. It was worth the visit and was... More
