St. Louis Cathedral, New Orleans

The Saint Louis Cathedral on Jackson Square is the oldest Roman Catholic Cathedral in the United States, dating back to 1727.

The Saint Louis Cathedral on Jackson Square is the oldest Roman Catholic Cathedral in the United States, dating back to 1727. Dedicated to the Crusading King Louis IX of France, the church with French Romanticism, Spanish Colonial and Renaissance architectural elements is an iconic landmark in New Orleans. The elegant symmetrical façade features a towering central spire with hipped roof and a central clock, with pilasters and columns on different levels. It is flanked by two smaller hexagonal towers.

The interiors feature wooden columns along the nave leading to a Rococo high altar with gilded and fluted Corinthian columns supporting an entablature inscribed with 'Ecce Panis Angelorum' (Behold the Bread of Angels). The stained glass windows and paintings depicting events from the life of St Louis are also of note.

The St. Anthony Garden behind the church has a statue of Jesus with arms stretched out.
