Not Just to Bourbon Street...

...New Orleans is also home to Jackson Square where the majestic Saint Louis Cathedral stands. This is one of the most gorgeous creations in the Country!

Standing in front of the St. Louis Cathedral; December 14


"Few cities in the world are so identified by a building as is New Orleans. The city is instantly recognized by our cathedral and its position overlooking Jackson Square. The Cathedral-Basilica of St. Louis King of France is the oldest Catholic cathedral in continual use in the United States. As the caretakers of the Cathedral we constantly battle the elements and the aging of the Cathedral with ongoing conservation and restoration."
