Popular with locals, Family-friendly

This wonderful example of French Colonial architecture dates to 1752, and is one of the oldest buildings in the American South. It is one of the few buildings in the city that has been in continual use by the church, at first to house nuns, then bishops and higher dignitaries to its use as the rectory for Our Lady of Victory Church. Inside, the fine wooden ceiling is fashioned from pine and cypress, and the two spectacular stained glass windows depict the Battle of New Orleans. The front garden is especially beautiful in the spring months.
