This is a beautiful church and we always try to schedule our stays over a Sunday so that we can celebrate Sunday Mass here. It is right off Jackson Square and immensely convenient to all hotels in the French Quarter.

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