"Pirate's Alley!" Pirate's Alley Tip by Jmill42
Pirate's Alley, New Orleans: 4 reviews and 5 photos
Pirate's Alley is a street that has many stories and legends associated with it. It is claimed that it was once a haven for pirates and that it was a place where slaves were sold. Couldn't tell you if either is true, but it does make for good stories.
In the picture on the right is the famous St. Louis Cathedral. On the left, is the Cabildo (the Old Spanish Governor's Mansion), right behind the Cabildo was where the Spanish Dungeon was located. The lamppost demarcates the intersection of Cabildo Alley. The lampost is pretty famous in local artwork.
Directions: It is adjacent to St Louis Cathedral in Jackson Square.
