Beautiful mission. Enjoyed walking around the grounds, visiting the chapel and gift store. So much History!
The grounds here are so peaceful and have so much history. I am sure this is one of the most spiritual places in the country. I just love lighting a candle and saying my prayers in the little chapel. I visit every time I come to St. Augustine.
I took my mother and 2 teenage daughters here for a visit. The grounds were so peaceful and beautiful. The feeling of peace is overwhelming. My daughter and mother also felt it.

But while we are Catholic, we were hoping to hear about the mission's history and its place in both the Church as... More
There are no words to express the beauty of this place. Very calming and peaceful place. Even for the children. Nice place to think and relax.
A warning to the reader in advance: Granted my review of this special place may well be biased due to the fact that my husband and I are both Roman Catholics and a visit to this site is not just an ordinary trolley stop to see a tourist attraction. This IS a place people travel to from many miles as... More
