Relive the Great Fire of 1788, that left the old French city in ashes, while standing in front of Don Joseph Vincent Nunez’ home, the Colony’s Royal Treasurer, from where the fire started and spread. Take a walk with us through Jackson Square, once known as the Plaza de Armas, where in 1769 the dramatic scene of the transfer of power from France to Spain took place when Captain-General Alejandro O’Reilly arrived with 2 dozen ships and 2,600 Spanish soldiers to firmly establish Spanish rule. Walk the alley along side the Cathedral, where Friar Antonio de Sedella, a beloved Spanish Capuchin, is believed to walk as a ghost in the early mornings. Hear the stories of Don Andres Almonester, Spanish Philanthropist and Royal Notary of Louisiana, who rebuilt the Illustrious Cabildo (Casa Capitular) the Presbytere (Casa Curial) and the Cathedral at his own expense, after the Great Fires. And you can always expect “something extra”…. That’s Nueva Orleans with The Savvy Native!
