Lafayette Cemetery No. 1

Your rating: None


A favorite scene of many movies that is made in New Orleans happens to be a cemetery. Lafayette is the oldest cemetery in the city with a history that dated back to 1824.
For lots of Asians cemeteries are meant to be scary and gloom, yet this is a green, peaceful holy place. Sculptures, tablets, old decorative structures are considered arts rather than bad luck.
Every operating day at 10:30 a.m., a walking tour is offered for the interested.
