We enjoyed seeing the large tour made available to visitors. Be sure to stop and grab a brochure to follow along. The beauty and historic value of the grave sites were very humbling to see.

There is a lot of history here. If you have ancestors who were not Catholic, look to see if they are buried here. It's a beautiful cemetery close to downtown St. Louis

This was one of the most interesting experiences, visiting this incredible cemetery. The history behind the monuments is fascinating. If you stop in the office they have pamphlets with various driving tours you can take, which really helps. The architecture is also incredible.

Beautifully kept. Make sure you pick up a map at the office. It was easy to walk round and very pleasant under the shady trees.
