A visit to New Iberia would not be complete without seeing some of the
churches and ante-bellum homes. Try this driving tour that should take about
and hour and a half: After leaving the Rosary House, drive down East Main
Street to the Civic Center where you'll visit the newly restored replica
of the Lourdes' grotto. Located in the heart of the city, this grotto
reflects the community's deep faith.




In the very next block, you'll see several bed and breakfast facilities in some of the area's most historic homes. Then you'll drive in front of The Shadows, the most famous ante-bellum home in the area. Continuing along East Main for another two blocks, turn right on Bridge Street. AS you cross the bridge, you'll see the old Mt. Carmel School sitting stately on property adorned with massive oaks.



Next, it's on to Loreauville by continuing down Bridge Street, which becomes Duperier Street. Eventually the road changes to LA. Hwy. 86. The short drive of 8 miles is well worth the time, as this quaint community has a lot to offer. Visit St. Joseph's Catholic Church on Main Street. The architecture is striking, but the altar and statues within are the main attraction.



There are many other area Churches that you may want to visit. In New Iberia, St. Peters Catholic Church is located in downtown New Iberia at 108 East St. Peter Street; Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church, 175 Frere; and Sacred Heart on the Teche Caholic Church, 2514 Old Jenerette Road. In Lydia, St. Nicholas Catholic Church is located at 133 South Main and Notre Dame Catholic Church is located at 240 Gary Street.

Of course, Rosary House employees can direct you to these and other points of interest.
