A wonderful place to unwind after sightseeing and shopping. Beautiful park setting on the water to stroll through. Many statues, memorial plaques and trees dedicated to loved ones. Must visit the chapel as it is a beautifully maintained historic place. Doesn't take much time, but well worth a stop.

Enjoyed walking around the grounds, some interesting headstones and history here. Free to get in. Did not go to the gift shop. Very spiritual place.

This site is the actual physical location where explorers came ashore in St. Augustine and set up a mission. There is a Catholic museum on site that is worth visiting. Part of the grounds are damaged currently due to Hurricane Matthew I believe in October 2016, but should be fixed soon. Still plenty to see and tour. Our visit was... More

Beautiful grounds to walk and relax on. Go into the Mission and then relax under a tree or near the water. Peaceful!

it was such a nice way to relax and sit and pray and just breathe, this church is just what you need. the church is small and really a time capsule to go back in time and think about how the others prayed and worshipped back then,,,,,

This sits a short way from the restored area and is worth a visit. This old building sits on a lovely park like area. You can't miss it as there's a huge cross on the property. Go and walk around and spend a few minutes inside this lovely old mission.

Having decided to spend two nights in St Augustine, Ben and Mrs Too availed ourselves of the visitor center then bought hop-on-hop-off trolley passes to complete an orientation for tourists in the city. One of the gems in this historically and culturally important area is this site, where the first Christian worship services in the New World are believed to... More

The mission and the grounds are worth a visit. For us it is a Spiritual place where the first mass was celebrated! Jesus, was here 50+ years before Jamestown. The chapel is where one can pray and feel "his" presence.
