Interesting and beautiful cathedral on Jackson Square. Easy access by trolley car or walking. The cathedral in one of the oldest continual operating cathedrals in the U.S. Well worth the visit and it is free!

Impressive from inside and out. This lovely cathedral is located in Jackson Square in the French Quarter. We were able to attend part of a mass and this house of prayer is simply spectacular. Founded in 1718 and established as a parish in 1720 it was designated as a basilica in 1964. They have mass every day and offer confession nearly every day as well. They have a lovely gift shop with reasonable prices and offer tours.

The St. Louis Cathedral is rightly one of New Orleans' most notable landmarks and the building with its triple white steeples next door to the historic buildings of the Cabildo and the Presbytere does give a good photographic shot, especially from the Washington Artillery Park.
But for those of us who are used to visiting the great Norman Cathedrals of Britain and the impressive Catholic cathedrals of Europe, internally its quite small and plain by comparison, and would actually fit quite comfortably into the knave of my local St Albans cathedral in the south of England.
But to give it its due, parts of cathedral date back to 1727, which makes The Cathedral-Basilica of St. Louis King of France, to give it its full name, the oldest Catholic cathedral in continual use in the United States, something the people of New Orleans can be rightly proud of.

Lovely church at Jackson Square. Historic, visited by the Pope, lovely garden behind church with strategically placed statue of Jesus that emits its shadow against the church wall that can be seen for blocks.

A beautiful Basilica located right next to Jackson Park. Pope John Paul II visited here on his visit to the US. The place is beautiful, and if there isn't mass going on you can go in and admire the beautiful art.
