Theres a small room just off the altar at St. Roch (who was the patron saint of plague victims) where supplicants leave their part or piece thats been healed, supposedly by the saint. Theres a bizarre collection of such items as eyeballs, crutches, false limbs and organs.

Wonderful market with maybe 30 vendors offering really well priced meals with lots of seating available. The choices were extensive with everything looking fresh. We choose seafood based meals which were all great. An excellent venue.

Tour is a safe and easy way to see the history of New Orleans. Keep a water bottle on your seat, other tourists will steal your seat on the bus :/

While the larger cemeteries in New Orleans are certainly interesting and beautiful, this smaller site is easily accessible and charming in a very different way. The highlight is the small chapel and its collection of ex votos: polio braces, glass eyes, dental plates, handwritten notes...More

Visited this place the day before Halloween. It is off the wall and absurd! Quite macabre in it's presentation. Dedicated to St. Roch, patron saint of healing against the plague and in this case during the Louisiana yellow fever epidemic. Located off the beaten path...More
