Saint Louis Cemetery is beautiful. It dates to 1789 and is the oldest cemetery still standing in the city, went and paid my respects to the OG Voudou Priestess Marie Laveau.

St. Louis Cemetery #1 was so beautiful.  Well worth the cost of the tour, and heat. Shade was very much welcomed.

If you check out New Orleans, definitely take a tour of one of the aboveground cemeteries. Walking in them is one thing, they are so unique but learning how they work and hearing stories about some of the tombs in them is so interesting. Some other fun pics too 🙂. Ok that is all the NOLA posts for now! 😂 😂

[11.02.18] Tombs, crypts and oven walls ⚰
0 31 3 days ago
[11.02.18] tombs, crypts and oven walls ⚰ "in new orleans, bodies are usually placed inside the walls of the tombs. because of the hot, subtropical climate, the tomb then effectively becomes an oven, and the high heat causes the body to decompose rapidly in a process that has been compared to a slow cremation. within about a year, only bones are left. just as an oven would not be constructed to bake a single loaf of bread, the tombs in new orleans cemeteries are used again and again. the specifics vary depending on the exact design of the tomb, but a typical scenario is that after a year, the bones of the departed are swept into an opening in the floor of the tomb, which is then ready for its next occupant. it is a common practice to bury all the members of a family—or multiple families—in the same tomb, with names and dates added to a plaque or headstone as necessary. this procedure is not only sanitary and efficient; it also avoids the problem of growing real estate needs as time goes on." —joe kissel ⚰ #stlouiscemeteryno1 #saintlouiscemeteryno1 #cityofthedead #citiesofthedead #cemetery #tomb #tombs #crypt #crypts #ovenwall #cremation #ladislavpapez #famille #famillecardellach #neworleans #nola #joekissel #vanishingpoint #leadinglines #onepointperspective #latergram #photolayers #photolayersapp

This statue is part of the Italian Benevolent Society Tomb located inside St. Louis Cemetery #1 in New Orleans. It is famous for a not so great reason. 
In 1969 a scene for the movie Easy Rider was filmed inside the cemetery. It was a scene that had to do with drug use and nudity. At one point, actor Peter Fonda climbed onto this statue and sat next to it. Well, when the Archdiocese of New Orleans learned what was filmed, after the fact, he was not pleased. Because of the movie Easy Rider, he banned all filming inside its Catholic cemeteries. It is still true to this day. You can view part of the scene on YouTube. #stlouiscemeteryno1 #italianbenevolentsocietytomb #graveyard_dead #graveyard_freaks #easyridermovie #mastersofdarkness #gothicsepulcrum #click_gravestone #immortal_gothic #gloomysideviews #project_necropolis #cemetery_shots #cemeterylovers #cemetery_nation #taphophilia #gallery_of_dark_arts

The old tattered tombs may not be as ornate as the Italian one but they’re still really cool to see. It’s a shame that people vandalized and looted them so bad after #hurricanekatrina .

The New Orleans Italian Mutual Benevolent Society’s marble tomb is by far the most ornate mausoleum in the St Louis Cemetary #1 in New Orleans.  Architect Pietro Gualdi designed this tomb in 1857. #🇮🇹 #neworleans #louisiana #stlouiscemeteryno1 #tomb #mausoleum #italian #orleansparrish #graveyard #architecture #catholiccemetery #catholic #nola

Part 1 of my #vacation this #november #2018. The first stop was #neworleans. We visited #stlouiscemeteryno1 and took a tour of the resting places of some very famous individuals. #marielaveau the #voodoo queen. #delphinelalaurie also allegedly remains here. An amazing historical location, and very interesting!! Just a heads up for tourists visiting this #cemetery there was a $20 fee to enter. Also don’t visit expecting to make your mark or leave offerings on any of these tombs as it is considered very disrespectful!  #hauntedhistory #travel #travelblogger #travelphotography #louisiana #nola #nawlins #graveyard #cemeteryphotography #cemeterylovers #voodooqueen #spooky #vacationmode #fun #travelholic #southerncharm #mardigras #death #life #celebration #instagood
