St. Louis Cathedral
New Orleans, Louisiana
It’s the heartbeat of Jackson Square and the Vieux Carre's most recognizable landmark. As the centerpiece of the original settlement (this particular building is the third on the site), the cathedral –-- the oldest in North America -- evokes the rich fabric of history that is New Orleans. Feel the vibe of former Big Easy residents who surely huddled here: pirates, plantation owners, French explorers, Spanish sea captains, Confederate duelers, William Faulkner, Tennessee Williams and more. Just steps from boozy Bourbon Street, iconic Cafe du Monde and antique shop-laden Rue Royale, the church remains one of the Crescent City's best loved attractions.
