toured the cathedral after mass on sunday. it is a beautiful example of the old catholic churches built in the 1800 and 1900's. the inside is marvelous with ornate statues and the altar is beautiful. fine example of early french, spanish construction.

This is a very nice church. It was interesting to see the building. It is run by volunteers and the tour cost a suggested donation of 1 dollar. It’s a nice way to beat the heat and the gift shop is small but very neat....More

Cathedrals are always nice to visit for the history, but also for their ornamentation. It is absolutely beautiful and serene. We lit candles and said prayers.

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
