“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

Even though I am not Catholic I enjoyed visiting the St. Louis Cathedral. The art work and statues are very colorful and masterfully done. I loved the respect that everyone showed while in the cathedral and that everyone is welcome. I brought a group of 15 teenagers and they had never seen anything like this coming for the Christian Church. Thank you for sharing.

“Amazing site”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

This is a great stop when downtown. If you are there on a Saturday it will be closed because there are always weddings there, but you might see the end of the wedding exiting the cathedral. A must-stop.

“Must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

This beautiful cathedral is not only inspirational, architecturally a vision, but is a sight that must not be missed when you are in New Orleans! One cannot absorb all the color, design, feelings evoked, and general splendor of this grand building and church in one visit. And no other church is called cathedral in the city....
