The church is lovely - can't visit New Orleans without stopping in. Good place to take a cool break on a hot day.

We visited the catholic Cathedral with thoughts of my daughter getting married here. Its just beautiful. The doors are 200 hundred years old. The inside and outside are amazing. You can stop in anytime as long as there isn't a mass going on.

Architecturally beautiful cathedral in the heart of Jackson Square in NOLA. Light a candle for a deceased loved one or walk through the Holy Door.

Absolutely beautiful. The artwork and structure is a sight to see. Even if you are not one of faith it is still worth visiting. If you can I highly recommended attending mass if you want to experience something you cannot in many other places in the states.

I wanted to go inside, but mass was going on. Very pretty from the outside and towers over Jackson Square. Try to get a peek inside if you can.

It was closed when we passed by, but what a sight to behold. It is exactly like a Disney castle - and the beautiful gardens in front just enhance the stunning scene.

Staying in French Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
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 across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
