"St. Louis Cathedral" by Judy Vincent.
St. Louis Cathedral framed by trees in New Orleans, Louisiana, United States of America. The cathedral is the seat of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New Orleans and among the oldest cathedrals in the United States. It is located next to Jackson Square in the French Quarter of New Orleans.
The city is named after the Duke of Orleans, who reigned as Regent for Louis XV from 1715 to 1723, as it was established by French colonists and strongly influenced by their and African cultures. It is well known for its distinct French and Spanish Creole architecture, as well as its cross-cultural and multilingual heritage. New Orleans is also famous for its cuisine, music (particularly as the birthplace of jazz), and its annual celebrations and festivals, most notably Mardi Gras, dating to French colonial times. The city is often referred to as the "most unique" in the United States.
