We headed here without a guide. Although we didn't hear the stories the guides may talk about the place, we really enjoy visiting the graves, reading what they can tell about the inhabitants and their families. Nice to take photos and pay respect to the souls buried there.

I think we visited about 3 cemeteries and all are different with different atmosphere. I love the old tombstones and their figures.

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
