“Great view when leaving the church”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

The church is pretty average however it offers a great ocean view when leaving. Worth going just for that!

“Very, very beautiful church”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2014

We popped into this church by accident, after eating at TIKE, and although it may not look special from the outside, it's probably one of the prettiest churches I've seen in the country. We spent a good half an hour just admiring all the art and intricate decorations inside the church. Beautiful.

“Beautiful church, inside and out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2014

This is a lovely place to stop if you are exploring the French quarter. It is a pretty peach pink and cream on the outside, and beautiful eggshell blue inside, with a stunning dome and elaborate details on the ceiling. It dates from the 1850s.

“Pretty pink church”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2014

Eglise de Notre Dame des Anges, or Church of our lady of Angels is located along Rue Dumas. It is one lane behind the road along the seaside promenade. The church is actually visible from the promenade across from an open plot of land opposite the church in which is a statue of Joan of Arc.
The church, I was told is made of limestone mixed with egg white to give it a shiny marble like texture. The pink coloured church built in 1852, is modeled on the Basilica at Lourdes in France.
The inside of the church is light blue with paintings along the walls.
In the cemetery beside the church is the tomb of the Marquis de Bussy.
