With a vibrant history that spans three centuries, there’s no place like New Orleans. The cultural clash of African, French and Spanish traditions has created a unique environment where ghosts and spirits thrive in the streets of the French Quarter. The city was founded in 1718 by the French on land that was originally inhabited by the Chitimacha tribe. The city always held strategic importance, being situated at the delta of the Mississippi River. New Orleans was highly sought after by every colonial power and even fell under Spanish rule for a short period. Even after the Louisiana Purchase, when New Orleans became an American city, it kept its own character, retaining its unique culture. Pirates and smugglers ruled, often holding more power than the local government. The city was an important route for trading smuggled goods to and from the Caribbean and into the Mississippi River basin. Catholicism and African traditions clashed to create Voodoo, giving the city its own spirituality and leaving behind a spooky aura that still hangs over the city today. Some quirky characters are known to haunt the city. The ghost of the spiritual healer Marie Leveau has been spotted in several locations across the city. Still, she is most likely seen hanging around her grave at the St. Louis Cemetery. The spirit of legendary pirate Jean Lafitte is often spotted in bars across the French Quarter or at his old blacksmith shop. The people of New Orleans are resilient, having survived numerous tragedies over the years. Fires, epidemics, hurricanes, but the people of the Big Easy stand firm, and so do the ghosts!
