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.

As a practicing Catholic and history major this piece of history is breathtaking beautiful. I would go see it and think about how it has survived all these years.

We enjoyed a wonderful, free concert at the Basilica Cathedral. The residents of St. Augustine are lucky to be the recipients of such great music, for free!

Beautiful cathedral currently undergoing extensive restoration (presumably for the 450 year celebrations next September). We had Mass twice there - priest was excellent and thought provoking.
