This is a very beautiful cathedral, and it is a defintley a must see. They were working on restoring the inside of the Basilica Cathederal, but it didn't put a damper on taking a peak inside even with the restoration crews there. I would definitley love to go back and take a look once the restoration / remodel is done.

A beautiful place to visit, but not possible to experience with the current needed re-construction. Return when this has been completed and most likely it will be a worth while visit

We went to Saturday night mass. The Cathedral is under construction but, still beautiful. It is always nice to walk to church & go to mass while on vacation

As you walk in there is a feeling of stillness and comfort where you forget what your troubles were before you walked in through the door. The church music playing just touches your soul. The Church large but not huge and is simple but beautiful with stainglass windows throughout. Make sure you check it out while you're in St. Augustine.... More

A beautifully stunning church located in the heart of America's oldest city. Although currently undergoing renovation it is certainly worth the stop.

An amazing work of architectural art. Unfortunately like most of the historic district is undergoing renovations at this time waiting for next years celebration. Still, a must see when you are in St. Augustine.

It was under construction the day I went.... It has wonderful wood ceiling and the paintings on the wall were amazing to see... (I'm not Christian, but love visiting temples and churches) This one was another church to me, although it was a very very old , well maintained one. Nice visit.

Currently being renovated to maintain the beauty and splendor. Great for pictures and a moment of peace during the whirlwind of a weekend trip to St. Augustine. This lovely church welcomes visitors to Mass and you can tell that the church family has amazing outreach, as evidenced by its home-visiting programs, veteran outreach and homeless outreach.
