SECRET NEW ORLEANS
Houses built to resemble riverboats, the finest business hall in the world, a meteorite in a golf course, a back alley that serves as a portal of the voodoo afterworld, a 1960’s time capsule, a house made of 1200 glass ashtrays, Lee Harvey Oswald forgotten Commemorative Plate, a secret doll museum on the second floor of a private house, the largest religious work of art on canvas in the world …
Far from the crowds and the usual clichés, New Orleans offers countless off-beat experiences and is home to any number of well-hidden treasures that are revealed only to residents and travellers who find their way off the beaten track.
An indispensable guide for those who thought they knew New Orleans well or would like to discover the other face of the city.
