  • For this part of the world, it's quite grand. An imposing building with interesting features. Interior is very French influenced, especially the stained glass. Definitely worth a peek inside,

  • I am not religious anymore, but it is special for a history buff to be in the oldest cathedral in the US. Spend about 10-15 minutes and read everything available.

  • Stunning historical architectural venue. Notable stop along the river near the French Quarter. Free admission and free to tour on your own. Relatively safe and friendly area to visit during the day. This landmark is a good meeting point if meeting up with friends or tour guides. Spectacular views all around. Wonderful place to take photos! ♥️
  • Beautiful place with talented artists and a great amalgam of cultures! Unfortunately no pets are allowed in the park, even though we witnessed children ripping off plants straight from the roots. Regardless if you wanna sight see, and meet with a wide variety of people and cultures I highly recommend!
