Full description
See the final resting place of the notorious Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau as well as many other colorful New Orleans natives. A local historian and master storyteller will tell you about the unique burial customs of the most haunted cemetery in Louisiana.

Founded in 1789 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, St. Louis No. 1 Cemetery is the oldest active City of the Dead in New Orleans. Ornate, crumbling and entrancing, St. Louis No. 1 is as eerily beautiful in the day as in the night.

The public is not allowed access to the cemetery unless accompanied by an Archdiocese-approved guide. The tour covers a distance of about 1 mile, and has a duration of around 2 hours.
Includes
  • All taxes
