New Orleans in Louisiana is the 46th biggest city and the most enjoyable one at that in the United States. From its architecture to the names of its city streets and other neighboring areas, one can conclude that the place has once been ruled by the French. It is home to many festivals including the Mardi Gras. Other than this, the city is also known for its delectable cuisines, jazz music and a lot more. Thus far, it became even more known all over the word because of the Hurricane Katrina that greatly devastated the city by killing hundreds of people and damaging millions of properties.

New Orleans is not part of any county or region like you can find in most states of the United States. Instead, it is one of the 64 parishes of the state of Louisiana. What makes them different is how they were once ruled by the French and the Spaniards who were predominantly Roman Catholic wherein local governments are divided into so-called parishes. Each parish is under the leadership of a parish priest and he is assisted by curates which collectively mean a group of other priests from within the parish. Since people are used to having their places in Louisiana called parishes, changing them into counties has become less of a concern among local leaders. Politically, counties and parishes enjoy the same rights and privileges too.

Originally, a parish is a term given to territories in a particular region which is assigned to one priest. Even up to this day, the same subdivision and name is used to refer to an ecclesiastical division. Sometimes, the term parish is used interchangeably with boroughs. Its meaning is not only limited to a territory but it can also be construed as a group of people or a congregation.

New Orleans is located in southeastern Louisiana. The boundaries of the city and the parish are the same which is Orleans Parish.. It is bounded by the parishes of St. Tammany to the north, St. Bernard to the east, Plaquemines to the south and Jefferson to the south and west.

New Orleans is in Orleans Parish.  Louisiana follows the Spanish system of parishes as opposed to counties.  Not to be confused with church parishes, which exist within a state parish.  

Surrounding parishes include Jefferson, St. Bernard, and St. Tammany.
