Located on the edge of the French Quarter, Cemetery Number 1 in New Orleans is the oldest in the city. Here, because of the swampy areas, the deceased are buried above ground so their coffins don't float to the top during the rain. You will also find the tomb of Marie Laveau, the legendary voodoo queen. Legend has it if you leave an offering for her, spin around three times and knock three times on her tomb, she will grant your wish.
