    St. Louis Cemetery #1

    by Yorick12 Written May 29, 2005
    St. Louis Cemetery #1

    The cemeteries in New Orleans are unlike any I have seen anywhere else. Due to the fact that the city lays below sea level, normal burials are impossible ( the corpses would resurface). So, all burials are above ground. They look like small cities, in fact they are known as "cities of the dead." All are similiar but St. Louis #1 contains the tomb of Marie Laveau the voodoo queen.
