Its gorgeous and holy. Not much else to say. If you want a breathtaking view, go see it. Be sure you don't plan to visit it on a Sunday as they have mass. As a tourist, come back another time and respect those who are attending.

This was the best part of my vacation! I had never seen a church so breathtaking! The pictures I took I will cherish for a lifetime, that is, of course, until I come back to St. Augustine ;)

We visited this Cathedral and the lighting that day was perfect! The church is well maintained, and the stained glass and art work work are high quality. Lots of history.

We go to the Basilica Cathedral every time we visit in St Augustine. It is breath taking, the pictures you take are ones you'd frame. They allow you to pray and go up to the ulter too. It has a great shop in it too for Christian crosses and holy items.

Loved going to Mass here on July 25th.. first time in St. Augustine and it was so nice! Just made the day special to be able to attend service here before heading back to Orlando.

This church is very beautiful. I like walking the old streets of St. Augustine and seeing the shops, but sometimes you just need to get away from the crowds and relax.

This church is stunning. The stained glass and the ceilings are beautiful. Look to the back of the church and there is The Virgin Mary and behind is a mural. You will be happy you visited.

Catholics, Non-Catholics, Tourists - Everyone should stop in and see this beautiful Cathedral if they are in historic downtown St. Augustine. I am not Catholic, but my husband is and we both enjoyed just looking at the windows, the wood, the artwork, the peacefulness of this cathedral. It was quiet inside with some people praying, some people walking around looking... More
