The beauty of this building, inside and out, is stunning. Even if you are not going to attend mass, visit the inside of this magnificent church. It is the centerpiece of the French Quarter along with Jackson Sq which it sits adjacent to.

The St. Louis Cathedral is stunning. It has so many beautiful stained glass windows. Every view is breathtaking. You can gaze at the artistry or you can calmly reflect and meditate or pray and feel moved.

At night on the backside there is a picture opportunity to take of a large Jesus shadow. During the day in front there is a beautiful court yard to take your lunch enjoy the street music and bells.

around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
