St. Louis Cemetery No.3, New Orleans Reviews - Write a Review

  • Probably the best of the 3 st Louis cemeteries. Very big and open with lots of graves and mausoleums to look at. Peaceful and quiet. Definitely a must see.

  • One of the few cemeteries I had the chance to visit. It is relatively peaceful and easy to navigate.

  • Never thought that I would enjoy going to a cemetery, but i kind of enjoyed this one. With all the different types and sizes. It was almost looking for a home.

  • I am a cemetery nut and for sure I like all the cemetery's in Nola but of the St Louis's this one is the least interesting to me. It's small but doesn't have much in the way of statues or unusual monuments. The coolest part was the second floor of the mausoleum had a balcony that gave a nice view of the cemetery. The metal statue was also one of the few things in the cemetery that I thought was interesting. This is free to visit and felt safe here and didn't feel it was Necessary to take a tour here. there is a sign saying no driving tours but we sorta ignored that and did a quick drive by. Didn't see much to stop and see but the mausoleum balcony was worth a look .. nice view there.
