Old Castillo Bed & Breakfast

Throughout the 19th century, steamboats sailed up and down Bayou Teche bringing travelers and goods to Acadiana. Those who stopped in St. Martinville found lodging and hospitality in a large brick building that came to be called the Castillo Hotel. It had one of the area's most luxurious ballrooms and was the setting for decades of community activities. When steamboat travel gave way to the railroads, the old hotel was sold to the Sisters of Mercy, who operated the Convent of Mercy School there.
