10 In Louisiana/ Travel

St. Louis Cemetery No.1 – New Orleans, Louisiana

Touring one of the gorgeously, ornate cemeteries in New Orleans is something that I have been wanting to do since my first visit here in 2009.  When we were trying to plan which tour to take and looked at many different options.  We looked at finding a free tour and going on our own, but we found a brochure for Historic New Orleans Tours, Inc.  It was a really good tour.  The adult admission was $20 for adults ($15 for students).  While we weren’t incredibly thrilled about the tour guide, as far as personality, but he gave us a lot of information about the tombs, the families within the tombs, and we got to see Marie Laveau the voodoo queen’s tomb!  So, I am still very glad that we did take the tour.  I thought I would just simply share the eerie, beautiful tombs from St. Louis Cemetery No. 1:

      It was quite the experience! It would be fun to just walk through, but having the guide made it SO MUCH more interesting!

    Great photos! I just got back from NOLA about a month ago and it was amazing to learn about all the history and stories of the old tombs. I always look forward to going back to NOLA!

    […] SAINT LOUIS CEMETERY, NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA – I mean, any cemetery is a creepy destination, but I think that there’s something extra-creepy about these above ground tombs in the voodoo capital of the U.S.. In fact, the third photo is the Voodoo Queen’s tomb! I highly recommend taking a walking tour of this cemetery because you’ll learn all kinds of info about this cemetery. […]
