Explore the historic Garden District, home to some of the finest old mansions
Be amaze in front of the beautiful colonials houses
Learn about the city's above-ground burial traditions in the Lafayette cemetery
Explore the Garden District with the help of a local guide who will tell you about the history of Louisiana's great planter families. You'll see the lavish homes as a shining symbol of their success.
People like Scarlett O'Hara, who lived on the plantation in the summer and in the city in the winter months, in the heart of New Orleans, or Anne Rice, author of the novel 'Interview with the Vampire' who lived nearby (Brevard House at 1239 1st Street.) You'll get a sense of the mysterious atmosphere that emanates from these imposing houses lined up next to each other. All that they have seen, the secrets of the aristocracy of the time that they sheltered. The era of masters and slaves, the segregation of the South, the Civil War, the abolition of slavery... The romantic impulses against the cruel historical reality.
Your guide will tell you the history and anecdotes about this popular cemetery, and you will learn about the rites of burial above ground.
