This cathedral is the oldest cathedral in the United States having opened their doors in 1718. Located in Jackson Square, it is impossilbe to miss. Just a short walk thru the church is quite a spiritual experience. The structure itself is not super large, but well crafted for the time period it was built. Our little group stopped in to light a few candles and say a few prayers. They have a nice little gift shop that sells tea candles for only $1 to place in the colorful glass candle holders. I believe they also have a daily mass at 12 noon, and on weekends.

Step back in time, reconnect with the French flavor of New Orleans and if so inclined stay for mass.

This beautiful cathedral is in my opinion the crown jewel of the French Quarter. Its' interior is beautiful without being overly ostentatious as in other Catholic churches and the two historically significant buildings on both sides form the perfect frame as they match and provide symmetry. My only complaint is that they close somewhat early in a city that seems to always stay up late so a visit to the inside must be planned for early in the day. Definitely an iconic sight not to be missed!

This beautiful Catholic church is central to the history of the Louisiana Colony and the city of New Orleans. It has been constructed three times on the same site. It is a lovely church and should be seen with a Cathedral tour guide. Please remember though, this is an active church and mass is offered on a daily basis. Show the respect you would want at your own place of worship as you visit our Cathedral, i.e. talking loudly, wearing inappropriate attire, etc.

This is a beautiful building and if you go in, look up to the ceiling which is spectacular. I know this is a 'working' church but considering the amount of history that it has seen, there is not a lot of information given out. However it is worth a visit, even just to sit to rest and enjoy this beautiful architecture.
