“Our Visit to a Devine Church”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

I have visited the Cathedral before and I had not remembered how breath taking it was. This was my wifes first visit to New Orleans and to the St Louis Cathedral, and she was so taken by our visit and its greatness. One of the most beautiful churches we visited.

“Great”

Nice piece of architecture to see regardless of your religion. Just step in. Avoid it on Sunday's or during weddings.

“Beautiful Cathedral”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

It's worth it to go at night to see it all lit up. Make sure you walk around the back to see "touchdown Jesus".

This cathedral has so much beautiful history. The ceilings had beautiful detail, and the inlays on the floors are amazing. Make sure to take a camera.

“Beautiful cathedral”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

Always worth a quick pass or visit -- every time! Even if you just pause to listen to some of the street musicians or grab a Bloody to go from Stanley's and walk on by, this center of New Orleans history never disappoints. The interior is lovely too.
