Came here on a Thursday morning. Very clean and neat. Very enlightening about the Cajun and Creole culture. A lot of walking if you are handicapped. Prices for admission are reasonable. Over 62 is free.

Beautiful creole plantation. We had a wonderful tour guide thru the plantation. Would recommend to others. Located in Saint Martinville, La. Charming town with some history.

Wifee and I had a beautiful walk among the grounds. The attraction is not mapped, but as you stroll around you'll see different areas you can walk to. You'll see a 350 yr old tree. Walk across a short bridge and fields to other structures.
