The cathedral puts you in a reverent mood. We attended mass and came away uplifted. The stained glass windows and alter are inspiring!

“Could not get in - ?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

We stayed very near the Cathedral , and outside of Sunday mass, it was never open to view - so....... just enjoyed the views from the park - oh, at night the shadow of the Jesus statue lit up is amazing and eerie.

“Beautiful, uplifting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

The area near Jackson Square (just East of the cathedral) is in my opinion the nicest part of the French Quarter. I did not have the opportunity to attend Mass at the Cathedral as I would've liked, but enjoyed my short visit just the same. For a dollar donation, there is a self-guided walking tour guide to help with art and architecture appreciation during the visit.
