Above-Ground Burials in New Orleans

New Orleans, LA, United States
2 Kudos
New Orleans is famous for its cemeteries, which feature above-ground tombs. This unusual situation is necessary due to the high water table under the city, and the fact that much of the city is in fact located below sea level. One famous example is Saint Louis cemetery, which is still in use and is surrounded by a high wall.
