    St. Louis #1 Cemetery Tour

    (4)
    St. Louis #1, also known as "The City of the Dead," is just blocks away from the French Quarter, whose raucous streets are filled with life all hours of the day. Made famous worldwide in the 1969 movie Easy Rider, it is the oldest active cemetery in New Orleans -- founded in the late 18th century. The cemetery contains a labyrinth of tombs, unique to most in the U.S., which hold the remains of some of the city's important historical figures, including, as legend would have it, Voodoo Priestess Marie Laveau. You'll visit The Musicians Tomb, the iconic "Oven" Wall Vaults, the Italian Mutual Benevolent Society Tomb from Easy Rider, and see the final resting places of Homer Plessy, Mayor Dutch Morial, and the Musson Family. You will also learn about jazz funerals and the Civil Rights Movement in New Orleans. Get ready to be wowed by the resting places of New Orleans' dead and living, and uncover a unique side of Creole Culture.
