If you are taking the time to visit Saint Martinville and are doing a "walking tour", this worth checking out, especially if you are interested in some history, especially some "fictituous history." you'll need to check out the story of "Evangeline" on the internet to get the full appreciation. The monument is nice and surrounding garden is well kept. Oh,... More

It's a statue. A nice one. Other than than I don't know what to say about it. If you go to the Evangeline Oak it's close. Located behind the church.

Well, it's a statue. It's to be enjoyed if you walk through St Martinville and see the St Martin de Tours Church. The occasion to know a little more about this Evangeline and the author...

No visit to the area is complete without exploring the story of Evangeline and experiencing her monument. Walk around the church and you will find the monument off the left side of the church.

The statue of Evangeline is set around the back of the St. Martinville de Tours church. The setting for the statue is quite lovely. We found the area to be very serene and a great place to take pictures. The statue was a gift to the city of St. Martins ills, this is not the tomb of Evangeline.

If you have ever read the poem of "Evangeline" by Longfellow, as I have, you were probably charmed by it, as I was. The faith, courage, and love of this noble Acadian woman is inspiring. When my family and I visited Louisiana to visit a friend, I was unaware of the vast number of others who also adored Evangeline's poem... More

Vanessa del Rio portrayed Evangeline in a silent move in 1929. She commissioned this statue of herself in the role which now sits behind the church. Worth finding and seeing.

We love St Martinville. Not only is a historic town, but also very quaint with shops and Evangeline/Acadian sights and stories. The church is beautiful, and highlights our Acadian heritage. The Evangeline Oak and park are so beautiful as well.

All English teachers should visit. Read or quote the poem there to feel historical and enjoy the beautiful walk along the Bayou Teche.

We drove up and checked out the statue. It is easy to get to. Takes about a minute to pull in and check it out.
