  • There's really nothing visually special about this church. It is historic but other than that, well you be the judge after you see it. The inside is pretty.  more »
  • This church is not to be missed. Surprising how old it was. The California Gold Rush was ongoing, when it was built.  more »
  • Beautiful and historic with plenty of the same surrounding it in the heart of the French Quarter. Lots of good musicians playing in the open air  more »

  • What a beautiful church. This is the center stone of the french quarter. 90% of tourist visit this place at least once. Mass is very traditional, the wait to get a wedding here is 4 ever.
  • Had a great visit a few weeks back. We actually looked around during a children's choir practice, so the videos came out fantastic. The stained glass is gorgeous and everything is kept in wonderful shape. There's even a confessional!
  • The exterior is a fun place to see unique people and listen to great music. The interior is beautiful and worth seeing.
  • I love watching mass at noon everyday but the audio is not working. I have put the volume on my T.V. as high as it will go and still can't hear the mass. Please look into this problem. This has been happening for the last few days. Thanks and God bless.
  • Incredible historic church. From The paintings on the ceiling to the stone floor the history is just pumping out of this place.
