St. Louis Cemetery #3 is located at 425 Basin St. in The Treme neighborhood. This is where the infamous voodoo queen Marie Laveau is buried. This is also the oldest cemetery in New Orleans built in 1789. You must have a tour guide to enter...More
This was very different and interesting.Basically mauseleums for families above ground burials that were placed in a cement box and later when the body had lost its moisture content the bones were slotted into the mausoleum
It's sad that I cold only get in with a tour, and didn't have any time to visit and photograph the tombs, but the two short tours I took were great. Beautiful tombs. My only wish is that I had more time.
Loved strolling thru here on my own. Be sure to bring a camera to take some shots of some of these old, and historic tombs. Be sure to leave a offering for Marie Laveau on her tomb, or the named one, but as history tells...More
There are many cemetary tours & we believe they are as good as the tour guide and that is often a crapshoot as to who you get. Two hours is too long of a tour especially in the heat. The tour guide talked about how...More

There are several different companies that offers tours here. You would need to check with the tour operator that you were considering. There are some areas of the cemetery that are narrow and some places are uneven. However, I imagine the more experienced companies have been asked this before and they would know the best route through. You need to make reservations in advance (access is only granted as part of a tour due to vandalism), so ask this question before you book.
