When we visited Jackson Square we went in to the Cathedral. It was really beautiful. It was also very clean and well maintained.

We felt like we were in Europe - this cathedral is so gorgeous! Beautifully maintained too! There was chanting in the background when we were there that added to the experience. This is definitely a must see!

What a beautiful church! We are not Catholic, but we do appreciate architectural beauty and design. This is an amazing building, both inside and out.

This is a beautiful church. It is a must see if you are touring downtown. Nice, cool place to sit and reflect or pray. It is meticulously clean and well kept.

We walked through the Cathedral very quietly admiring the stained glass windows, ceiling paintings, and rather small baptismal font. We were disappointed that the gift shop had no ST. Vincent de Paul medals of any type. The Society of St. Vincent de Paul serves so...More

This cathedral is a beautiful place to stop and look around, both inside and outside. For those not from the area, it is right next to Jackson Square, so we recommend checking out both!

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
