The Spanish Period of New Orleans (1762 – 1800) ushered in far-reaching changes across the city’s infrastructure. Both our system of above-ground burial and the Spanish Fire Code of 1794, were introduced during this era, giving us the iconic above-ground tombs and the beautiful brick townhomes, which have defined the city in images for hundreds of years. The French Quarter & Cemetery Tour takes guests to St. Louis #1, our oldest above-ground cemetery, to discover the reasons for this burial tradition and the types of tombs in our Cities of the Dead. During the French Quarter architecture portion of the tour, we discuss the changes introduced to the city’s architecture by the Spanish Fire Code. We’ll learn the common types of French Quarter buildings, and learn how they reflect the people, politics, culture, and climate of the mid-nineteenth century.
