Theres a small room just off the altar at St. Roch (who was the patron saint of plague victims) where supplicants leave their part or piece thats been healed, supposedly by the saint. Theres a bizarre collection of such items as eyeballs, crutches, false limbs and organs.

Tour is a safe and easy way to see the history of New Orleans. Keep a water bottle on your seat, other tourists will steal your seat on the bus :/

Located within the St. Roch neighborhood, this cemetery has been called the most unusual in all of New Orleans. This is probably due to the St. Roch chapel, which is located in the cemetery and is filled with prosthetics, crutches, and other items of those...More

While the larger cemeteries in New Orleans are certainly interesting and beautiful, this smaller site is easily accessible and charming in a very different way. The highlight is the small chapel and its collection of ex votos: polio braces, glass eyes, dental plates, handwritten notes...More
