While driving around New Orleans, one of the must stops is the St. Louis Cathedral. It is the oldest one in the United States and holds a lot of history. Go check it out.

This historic cathedral provides a quiet place for reflection and is a convenient place to attend Mass if you are staying in the Quarter.

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.
