"St Louis Cathedral" St. Louis Cathedral Tip by Tom_Fields
St. Louis Cathedral, New Orleans: 38 reviews and 83 photos
This is the oldest Catholic cathedral in the entire US, established as a parish in 1720. So began Louisiana's Catholic heritage--a vital part of the state's culture. This is why the state of Louisiana has "parishes" instead of counties, as the other states have.
It's a beautiful piece of work. Not as imposing as some in Europe, but it's worth your while to walk all the way around it and have a good look. This is the very center of the city.
Address: 615 Pere Antoine Alley
Directions: Facing Jackson Square
