Visiting some of the Beautiful older churches in the City is worth your time. The woodwork and ornamentation put into building this church was just unbelievable, visit and enjoy. Neighborhood is ok, visit during daytime hours, not at night.

The church is beautiful and inviting. The real highlight was the Gospel choir which in itself was worth the visit.

My husband and I were looking to get to mass and this church was recommended to me over the St. Louis cathedral. There is nothing architecture-wise or picturesque about this church, but if you are Catholic this is a different experience than your traditional mass....More

Have visited this church in the past, & it's always a heartbreaker. The memorial in front is a great testimonial to the people of New Orleans & how we must "Never Forget".

A friend in our group wanted to do this and I was skeptical having not been to church in years. However, it was one of the the highlights of our trip! Having been raised in the boring old-school church where old white men go through...More

I was told that if the top shutters on the 3rd floor are open that the vampires are out hunting and that you should leave the French Quarters. Be watching and be weary.

That sound? That flavor? That certain je ne sais quoi
that lets you known you’re in “Nawlins” and nowhere
else? It’s all good and in broad abundance on the
streets of Tremé, where so much of what’s considered
to be the very best of New Orleans culture and
tradition is, put simply, just how people go about
their daily lives in this historic part of town. As
one of America’s oldest African-American neighborhoods
