Church of the Assumption was built in 1852 and is considered one of the most magnificent Catholic churches in Louisiana. There are fourteen Romanesque columns with Corinthian capitals and a ceiling composed of octagonal shaped plaster casts suspended by cables and accented with gold leaf. There are marble fonts and a spectacular marble alter. Intricate German-made stained glass windows line the walls. Terrazzo floors complete this beautiful church. Its beauty can only be truly appreciated in person.
