I have always had a thing for the macabre and cemeteries. New Orleans has some of the best. Sadly, they close the gates to some locations very early. Most are done through walking tours. There tends to be potential crime in the area at night.
The beauty of these resting places never fails to touch me. Dead but never forgotten! Every time I visit here I learn something new and am so glad this cemetery is still open to the public at no charge, unlike St. Louis cemetery no. 1 where you have to pay a tour guide just to go inside :(
Beautifully peaceful, super clean. No crowds and best of all you don’t need a tour guide to visit
Great cemetery with a lot of history. It is very calming to walk around and read all the headstones.
This cemetery had just closed when my group arrived so we did not get to get a tour. We took photos through the gates and a local gave us information about how and why they bury the deceased this way. We discovered a few ladies were trapped inside. They didn't realized the cemetery closed at 3pm. People in my group climbed over the wall to help them out. They were relieved- especially when it was 93 degrees this day.
