The local geology means that in New Orleans, people are mostly laid to rest above ground level, resulting in the vast number of large, ornate tombs that populate the city's many cemeteries. Although some cemeteries allow people to engage in self-directed tours, some insist on an official guide and in any case, it's safer and more interesting to have someone lead you around these graveyards—some of which date to the 18th century. The two most famous are S.t Louis Cemetery #1 and Lafayette Cemetery. The former houses the tomb of Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau; the latter is a popular location for movies that have been filmed in New Orleans.
