If you only visit one of NOLA's above-ground cemeteries, make it this one. The setting is everything you would hope for: stately old homes surrounding the stone-walled cemetery with lush vegetation and oak trees everywhere. Many of the Garden District walking tours start here.

It was nice to tour the cemetery and see all the different tombs. I found it sort of fascinating. There's usually tour guides out front offering to take u on a tour but we decided to just walk through by ourselves. It gets really hot in there so take water inside with u.

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.

Our tour guide was great, the burial process is so smart, creative and how it should be done everywhere! Don't miss this on your NO trip!

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.
