There are three St. Louis Cemeteries in New Orleans, but the oldest extant cemetery in the city is St. Louis Cemetery Number 1. It is still the site of several burials a year
. Here you will notice that the cemetery's graves are above ground tombs, referred to as 'Cities of the Dead' because they resembled small houses and make the cemetery look like a city in itself.
To ensure the historic preservation of this local landmark, recent rules set by the Catholic Archdioesces of New Orleans require all visitors to this cemetery to be accompanied by a licensed tour guide.
