St. Louis Cathedral (New Orleans)

The Cathedral-Basilica of Saint Louis, King of France, also called St. Louis Cathedral (French: Cathédrale Saint-Louis, Roi-de-France, Spanish: Catedral de San Luis), is the seat of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New Orleans and is the oldest cathedral in what would become the United States. The first church on the site was built in 1718; the third, built in 1789, was raised to cathedral rank in 1793. The cathedral was expanded and largely rebuilt in 1850, with little of the 1789 structure remaining.

GeoBeats offers great background information about the cathedral in this video. Really hints at just how much more you can see if you can manage to visit.

A brief video showing one of the most photographed locations in the world, with the sound of the bells chiming in the background. Or, the foreground since they're pretty loud.
