St. Louis Cemetery #1, New Orleans’ oldest, continuously operated above ground Catholic cemetery is the highlight of our 3-in-1 walking tour.

A brief break at the Basin Street Visitor’s Center will give you a chance to catch your breath and digest the wealth of information you learned the first half of your tour.
