“Typical Cathedral”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

It's nothing that exciting if you've seen other cathedrals. It's decent size and has a lot of pretty stained glass, but I didn't find anything special about it compared to other cathedrals. But it's free, and is in a great location if you're in the French Quarter, so it's worth it to step inside and check it out.

“Breathtaking & Beautiful”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

The Cathedral is breathtaking and it’s just a beautiful place to take pictures. If you walk up to the top of Artillery Park, you can take pictures from there and get a full view of the Cathedral.

“Nice Cathedral”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

Heard it's the most beautiful Cathedral in area. We saw that John Paul II was visiting this cathedral in 1987.

“Well Worth a Visit”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

It is really nice to find a well preserved and maintained European style basilica/cathedral in the US. This one is supposed to be the oldest still in use in the US. It is well worth the visit!

“Well kept old cathedral”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

Nice job restoring and keeping it up. Good examples of old style cathedrals with lots of ornate woodwork, stained glass and large paintings. Lots of activitygoing on in front on the cathedral, venders and performers.
