St. Louis #1 is the oldest existing cemetery in New Orleans. It was, and to some extent, still is, a French Catholic cemetery. Many gravestones are in French, but with the help of your guide, you'll be reading them in no time at all.

You will find the funerary customs and practices intriguing. You will be charmed by the symbolism which personalizes many tombs.
