French Quarter's Jackson Square

Named for Battle of New Orleans hero Andrew Jackson in 1815, Jackson Square Park has been called one of “America’s Great Public Spaces” by the American Planning Association. Roughly the size of a city park, the space is a regular venue for live musical acts. At its center you’ll find Saint Louis Cathedral, the oldest cathedral in North America.
