This area is beautiful and Absolutely free. We spent 2 hours walking the grounds and never got bored. We were lucky enough to attend a Vesper Ceremony and the entire grounds seemed peaceful and relaxing. We also saw an alligator in the ponds- which added some excitement!

Always a must when we visit St. Augustine. Save it for the last thing you do and it washes away all the hectic of a tourist day.

Quiet. Small. Peaceful. A little treasure in honor of mothers everywhere. This is within walking distance of the Fountain of Youth which we didn't know at the time...but would recommend that you do that....no hils. All flat!

A quiet stop off the beaten path. Nice to meditate here. A beautiful place. You may want to bring nuts to feed the squirrels.

This is a very peaceful attraction not far from downtown St Augustine. There is a box for donations but not required to walk the grounds. The highlight is the giant cross by the water. Short trails wind from it into a shaded area and a small museum with gifts is near the parking lot which is free.

Chock full of history. There are plenty of signs with detailed historical explanations. This is a very beautiful serene place. Wander the winding paths and look at some of the headstones dating back to the1600's.

Very peaceful. Loads of history here. Treat yourself to this retreat area. I am not Catholic and that had no bearing on my visit. Truly a beautiful, restful place.
