A National Historic Landmark, Old St. Patrick's Church is one of only two early landmarks of distinction left in Lafayette Square, the other being Gallier Hall. Irish immigrants built the Gothic-style church in 1840 to rival the French St. Louis Cathedral in Jackson Square.

This is a very beautiful church built in the 1830’s. Old style cathedral with wonderful old stained glass windows. Convenient to the convention center and only a few blocks from WW II Museum.

St. Patrick's is a beautiful historic Cathedral. Attended Good Friday Service. The altar is incredible, as is the painted ceiling. A very traditional service with very good music, an excellent homily and much history in the City of new Orleans. Recommended.

Such a beautiful church. The altar is just amazing and takes your breath away. Make sure you confirm what day/times they are open during weekdays before venturing out.

Church located only about 100 metres from Lafayette Square and from the outside is a nice piece of architectural design. Inside is beautiful and worth a look, I attended the 12.00pm mass and it was well down and inspiring.

Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other
parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title
might suggest that this area is all about business and
little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you
away from the Central Business District. The CBD
offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be
touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the
world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts
