Transalated it mean 'Church of our Lady of Angels'.

My husband and me literally stumbled across this beautiful church when riding around the French Quarter on our bike. The facade is light pink and white and it sits just off the beach. Many travel portals mention this church resembles the Basilica of Lourdes in France, but I don't think it does. It has it's own charm though and is lovely!

There was a mass in French going on when we visited. Looks beautiful in the evening sunset.

I visited this on sunday morning and the sermon was going on. The architecture was good and location is near seaside. The ambience is excellent. I could not explore inside as there were lot of people attending the church.

We took a wrong route to locate this but this was very easy to find.

From Police Headquarters take a left and go straight, then a right and you are right there.

Church is well sculpted and has fascinating interiors, anyways you'll have to come to Promenade - Rocky Beach, you should go here atleast once.

Prefer going here in the evenings.

A church with touch of French architecture, that has been rebuilt and rebuilt again, but still maintains its beauty and history. Better still, you have beach right in front of the church.

It was full of people on the christmas day and the way it was decorated was amazing. It cant be more beautiful that this. The Sculptures and photos and all items kept there had their own story to share. Must visit.
