Marie Laveau’s Tomb

Saves: 4
Check-ins: 0
In the 1800s Marie Laveau supposedly moonlighted as a Voodoo Queen after she closed the doors of her hair salon. After her death in 1881 a rumor persisted that she could grant favors if the petitioner scrawled three Xs on her tomb. Of course, this led to countless Xs covering her tomb and thus the cemetery was forbidden to anyone not with a bona fide tour guide. So plan on visiting only after you've found and paid a local tour guide to escort you.
