"Los Islenos" museum and grounds is located in St Bernard Parish, near Chalmette, Louisiana. The museum celebrates the people who settled the area in the late 1700's. Coming from the Canary Islands, they were tied to Spain and maintained traditional culture yet set up a community and learned how to live in the bayous of south Louisiana. Some staff of this museum can trace their heritage to the earliest of those who settled the region.
