Churches of Architectural/Historical Significance

Religious or not, New Orleans’ churches are a sight to see. The most famous of New Orleans’ buildings is actually the Cathedral-Basilica of St. Louis King of France, the oldest Catholic cathedral in continual use in the United States. But there are plenty of other places of worship to visit and explore, many from different Christian denominations and religions. Synagogues, Mosques and small Voodoo temples also maintain a presence in New Orleans.
