The Cathedral-Basilica of Saint Louis King of France, better known as the St. Louis Cathedral in the French Quarter of New Orleans is a graceful vision from the exterior, but best viewed from the inside.
Built in 1727, the church has been a center of worship for over 280 years, with mass celebrations still celebrated daily. Entering the building, you can feel the spirituality that has taken residence in every crevice of the stunning architecture.
We enjoyed our reverent pause inside the St. Louis Cathedral. A lovely respite from the hot summer and the perfect place to reflect on the blessings of your journey.
I suggest picking up a self-guided tour (brochure,) available for a $1 donation in the entrance area. This will truly enhance your understanding of the splendors and history withing the cathedral. A schedule of mass times may be found inside the cathedral and there is a nice gift shop adjacent to the foyer area.
