This Catholic Cathedral is beautiful and provides a peaceful, spirit filled respite after the craziness of Jackson Square’s noise and hubbub. They have a daily mass and a very nice little gift shop.

Very nicely designed iconic structure. The interior is adorned with many nice pieces of art. Certainly worth a stop.

St. Louis Cathedral is absolutely stunning. If I could I would get married there. I just love the character of this church. It is must see if you’re in Nola.

We weren’t able to go inside due to a wedding. The outside and surrounding Jackson Square is pretty. At night the statue is lighted which creates a shadow on the back of the church.

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
