Overview
Visit the oldest and most legendary graveyard in New Orleans on a guided tour of St. Louis Cemetery #1. It's not possible to enter alone, so let a guide share the cemetery’s storied history and show you the most intriguing above-ground tombs. Bonus: This is the only tour that includes a group ritual and blessing at the final resting place of Voodoo priestess Marie Laveau, one of the most visited graves in the United States.
What to Expect
After connecting with your guide and group near St. Louis Cemetery #1 in central New Orleans, enter the gates of the city's oldest graveyard, known for its ornate yet decaying tombs and reports of paranormal activity. Archdiocese rules now forbid visitors to enter alone, so a licensed guided tour is the only way to explore this legendary site. Learn about the long history of the cemetery, which holds the remains of more than 100,000 people, and New Orleans’ unique above-group burial practices.

Feel free to take pictures as your guide leads you to some of the most interesting and important family tombs, including the alleged final resting place of famed voodoo practitioner Marie Laveau. Perform a special group ritual and blessing here at America’s second-most visited grave (after that of Elvis), and discover more about voodoo during a stop in historic Congo Square. You’ll also see one of the first mortuaries in New Orleans before the tour ends.
