Lovely! Must see/do. Incredible choir, organ and KETTLE DRUM! It has a rich history in New Orleans and seems very involved with the community.

Whle not as adorned as other basilicas and cathedrals in the US and Europe, this is an attractive and compelling edifice. Don't miss it.

Worth a visit as the Cathederal is a work of art inside. Beautifully painted ceilings and carved woodwork.

Gorgeous architecture. Beautiful surroundings, just outside Jackson Square. The candles were a little pricey at $2 each, but worth it.

Thursday mid-morning I stepped into the cathedral. Cool air and quiet surrounded me. I loved the Mary altar. I learned about a new saint. A lovely respite from the busy French Quarter.

Visiting in New Orleans for forty years and had never been inside the cathedral. It is beautiful and unique.

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
