Don't just visit, make sure to engage with the employees. They will share so much amazing history. The great detail, the beautiful workmanship, the country as it has evolved, and the appreciation for it all.

I prayed to my relatives and lit candles to the sound of gregorian chant music. A lovely experience. Bought plastic bottle to pour holy water in and take home

A very beautiful church. If you go to Jackson Square, you must go inside. It is a gorgeous church. Thankfully it was not too full of people when we went. Gives you a chance to really see it.

When going to the French Quarter, you will see this majestic Saint Louis Cathedral. It faces the Jackson Square Park and the Mississippi River.

We went to mass Sunday morning. We always try to go to mass whenever we visit another city. Whether you are catholic or not, this is worth the stop.

This was so beautiful inside and out. You would be able to go inside and see for yourself even if you aren't Catholic.

Absolutely love the square and the park that surround the Cathedral. Some lonely photograph opportunities and free entry to the Cathedral for those that are keen to enter.

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs

around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
