Stunning cathedral

Have seen photos of this cathedral so often - even more magnificent in person, both outside and inside. Beautiful to see the cathedral at sunset.

While walking Jackson Square and the French Quarter I wanted to take in the beauty and history of the gorgeous St. Louis Cathedral. I was not disappointed. The cathedral was so peaceful and I was pleased to find everyone respecting the reverence of the spiritual location. Walking around is free but donations are much appreciated and for a $1 donation...

This cathedral is very beautiful and the history is intriguing. It's open to the public but you are reminded to be respectful while inside.

Was undergoing some construction or renovation, but the church is still a beautiful place to stop and see.

Definitely worth a visit to see how they used to live when the cathedral was built. Just a bit Frenchified

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.
