Very beautiful, artistic old church. Painted ceilings. Awesome stained glass. The Stations of the Cross are all in French, and start from the left front, ending on the right.

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
