What You'll Get
As anyone who’s ever seen a jazz funeral knows, in New Orleans we understand that death should be a celebration of life. That’s part of the reason no other city in the United States is renowned for it’s cemeteries the way we are. So while you’re here, why not stop in for a visit to New Orleans’ oldest above ground cemetery?
St. Louis Cemetery No. 1 was founded in 1789. Due to unique environmental circumstance and centuries old Catholic tradition, standard below ground burials could no longer take place and the people of New Orleans had to devise some creative solutions, and so the first St. Louis cemetery was born.
An 8 block area in what used to be the uninhabitable outskirts of town, home to the tombs of plantation owners, architects, pirates, a chess champion, a voodoo queen and Nicolas Cage.
