This cemetery is very large. We did a short 10-minute walk through this place (only scratched the surface). The mausoleums were really gorgeous. They were all decorated with sculpted angels. It's worth a stop for some photos, but this place probably wouldn't occupy you for...More

Went here for a cemetery tour! Got such great knowledge about the burial procedures, celebrities that were buried there, and a bunch of cool other things about the city. Definitely a must see it you are there for a bit.

You can get the feel of St L#1 without having to be tethered to a tour guide. Quite a number of interesting tombs.

It reminds a bit of Recoleta in Buenos Aires with the number of mausoleums but these have a very different purpose. The number of people "buried" in each tomb is staggering. Rene Lacoste is buried here.

Visiting this cemetery was part of a city tour. I was intrigued by how many family members were buried in the same crypt. Some were very old and others were very beautiful and definitely modern in the embellishments. I could have spent a lot more...More

This cemetery is one of the few remaining in New Orleans that you can enter without being on a tour. A few years ago, due to vandalism, many such cemeteries were closed to tourists. This one offers a vast array of gravestones and mausoleums. The...More
