Cultural capital

New Orleans, rebuilt after Hurricane Katrina that struck it in August 2005, is a very beautiful city from an architectural point of view, unlike any other in the United States. Its luxurious mansions and buildings retain the influence of Spanish and French architecture, which gives it a European character that distinguishes and exalts it.

One of the things that you cannot stop doing if you travel to New Orleans is stroll through its streets, discovering its hectic and wonderful neighborhoods, each one with its own identity. In the heart of the city is the French Quarter , brimming with European charm. There you will find surprising places, as well as a wide range of restaurants where you can enjoy excellent local cuisine, antique shops and art galleries.

Be sure to take a stroll through the Garden District , to see its beautiful mansions, or through Riverbend with its beautiful historic houses and Audubon Park, full of centuries-old oak trees.
