  • I recommend that you take a guided tour otherwise you will need to do a fair bit of background reading to be able to see how a New Orleans Cemetery works. Some people might be spooked out by a place l...  more »

  • Never thought that I would enjoy going to a cemetery, but i kind of enjoyed this one. With all the different types and sizes. It was almost looking for a home.
  • Place looks great and peaceful. Plenty of memories are here.
  • I am a cemetery nut and for sure I like all the cemetery's in Nola but of the St Louis's this one is the least interesting to me. It's small but doesn't have much in the way of statues or unusual monuments. The coolest part was the second floor of the mausoleum had a balcony that gave a nice view of the cemetery. The metal statue was also one of the few things in the cemetery that I thought was interesting. This is free to visit and felt safe here and didn't feel it was Necessary to take a tour here. there is a sign saying no driving tours but we sorta ignored that and did a quick drive by. Didn't see much to stop and see but the mausoleum balcony was worth a look .. nice view there.
  • Beautiful grounds. If you're visiting and would like to see how NOLA pays respect to the dead this is the place to go.
  • Everyone is just dying to get in.... okay cheesy joke aside this place is pretty cool and it's in a nice part of town so I'm not scared to go walk it myself without a tour group like the other cemeteries

Where to stay in New Orleans

Though you can walk to most tourist attractions in New Orleans from a hotel in the central business district, remember that many other parts of town feature less expensive and equally comfortable accommodations. Smaller hotels and private guesthouses in quiet residential neighborhoods offer not only good local food and spacious rooms, but can also allow you to explore the city's culture away from overwhelming tourist crowds. To reduce your carbon footprint during your stay, consider one of French Quarter's many green or eco-friendly hotels.
