I just wanted to see the streets of New Orleans, so I looked at reviews for a good restaurant, found one, ate there and then just started walking. I could see this church from way down the street and was drawn to it. I took pictures walking towards it, right in front of it and across the park from it.... More

I attended a wedding here, beautiful church. Once the doors are closed you lose the madness outside. Highly recommend.

Every time we go to NOLA, we spend an afternoon sitting outside this beautiful and historic cathedral! Jackson Square is amazing! Next time we are planning on going to Sunday Mass!

Lovely to see from the outside. Sadly, we went in the evening, so we didn't get the chance to see the interior. But a definite must for any New Orleans excursion.

Don't just say walk by, but take quick and walk through. The interior architecture is very impressive, but, the murals are magnificent. There is no charge . So, it's worth the 10 minutes of your time. The inside certainly far surpasses the exterior of cathedral. To bad there is no tour, at least that I'm aware of.

This is a beautiful and historical place to escape from the constant busy-ness of the French Quarter. The minute you step inside, all is quiet and respectful.

The French Quarter is a loud and busy place all the time. What a nice change to step into the St. Louis Cathedral and listen to the quiet. The oldest Catholic Cathedral in the US it will one day rival the golden splendor of its predecessors in Europe. Those cathedrals have had many more years to accumulate the gold trims.... More

This church is beautiful. I sat inside for a while admiring the stained glass windows and artwork. So much history and it's right by Jackson Square!

This church is so historic place I ever seen. The décor of the church is beautiful, all the Saint and religious artifacts are so well kept.

We did not go inside because it was late but did marvel at what we could see. It is a nice stop on our walk around New Orleans

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
