The building itself is breath taking. The architecture is awesome. Go inside to view a very beautiful church. All visitors are welcome.

This was really awesome to see and experience. To realize how long it has been there was surprising and to see it still being used for church services was great.

This is a beautiful cathedral and you can spend quite a bit of time looking at all the beautiful aspects of it. They hold mass here so plan your visit accordingly so you can look around.

It is no wonder that New Orleans uses this as a center piece in many of their postcards. This place is amazing and sitting right behind Jackson square it beautiful. The city does a great job at keeping the area clean.

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

Went by the Cathedral yesterday. The Gift Shop is open from 10- 3. As it is run by volunteers, it is usually closed from noon to one for lunch. Hope this helps.
