If the city of Abbeville, which was founded in 1843 by a Catholic priest, is on your list of places to see, you're in for a treat.  Abbeville's downtown is centered around beautiful Magdalen Square and surrounded by National Historic Register properties, both commercial and residential.  You will find some of the best Cajun and traditional food in the area at any one of the 22 plus restaurants which call Abbeville home.  A leisurely walk through the city will allow you to take in such sites as the Steen's Cane Syrup Mill, the Riviana Rice Mill, the Abbeville Cultural and Historical Alliance Center, the 100 year old Saint Mary Magdalen Catholic Church and its adjacent cemetery, and the Vermilion Parish Courthouse.  Visit some of the many shops which feature the works of  local artisans.

Experience our culture and history first hand.  You'll be glad you put us on your list of places to visit.  For tourist information you may contact the Abbeville Tourist Center at 337-898-4264 or e-mail us at
