Victory guards over a tomb in a New Orleans cemetery. New Orleans is home to over 40 cemeteries, all filled with unique and rich histories. In fact, New Orleans cemeteries are sometimes referred to as the "cities of the dead."
The first thing you notice when you visit a New Orleans cemetery is the above-ground tombs, which often look like small houses. When you take a closer look, you can see that the tombs are embellished with decorations or religious symbols and are often surrounded by an iron gate. This looks like a fence surrounding someone's property. The large clusters of small houses and street-style layout can often look like a city, which leads to the moniker of the “cities of the dead.”
