Au programme

Tours will meet at 411 N. Rampart Street, in front of Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church, also know as St. Jude Church. We will explore the history of the church, which was established in 1826 as a mortuary for the victims of yellow fever. We will then take a short walk to St. Louis #2 cemetery. There I will explain the unusual burial process. I will explain why and how we bury our dead above ground. I will show pictures and videos of our traditional second line funerals.
Other things to note
New Orleans weather can sometimes be unpredictable. Consider bringing an umbrella for shade and rain. Also, it is advisable to have sunscreen and water.

I have been hosting tours for over 7 years. I specialize in St. Louis #1 Cemetery. As a native of New Orleans, I grew up just blocks from the cemetery. I know the history of some of its famous occupants. The burial process alone is fascinating.

Muriel is awesome. She has vast knowledge of the history behind the cemetery and gave detailed stories. She was funny but also serious when it came to some stories. I would recommend this tour to my friends who plan to visit in the future.

Ms. Muriel was a great tour guide. She was born and raised in New Orleans and added personal stories to her wealth of historical and contemporary information about the St. Louis cemetery #1. The tour was a great value.

You need a guide to visit the cemetery. I really din’t like big groups and shouting guides. Muriel offered us a nice walk on the cemetery, good stories and a small group for a fair price. I would highly recommend her as a guide!
