A quiet, scenic setting

A wonderful place to visit away from the downtown crowds. The volunteer staff are very inviting and the historical displays are well done.

You must visit this serene shrine (I'm full of alliteration today!) to simply relax and stroll the grounds. You don't have to be either Catholic nor even religious to enjoy the peaceful serenity of the shaded trails and old graves. Simply,ma most overlooked gem in this tricky-tacky city

This is a beautiful park that is very rich in history. In this park you can find a huge cross that marks the site of where Christianity started in the continental US. On site you also find the shrine of Our Lady of La Leche. I was told by a museum employee that many women who wish to conceive but... More

We visited the Mission specifically to ask for Our Lady's intercession. The grounds are beautiful and there is a lot to see! A great place to pray and meditate!

I loved this place. It was so peaceful and special. I just want to clarify something. The Area is called Mission of Nombre de Dios since that was where Menendez landed his ship from Spain, but the image above is of the church of Our Lady of La Leche. It is located in the property. There is a museum and... More

Beautiful small park( free) with shaded walkways and small, active Catholic chapel on-site. The large cross visible from all of St Augustine is on this site.

So beautiful and peaceful! We happened upon the mission church at the end of Mass, and heard the most beautiful singing coming from inside. Many trees, making this a wonderful place to cool off on a hot day.

When in St. Augustine, take time to visit the Mission Nombre de Dios, the first permanent Christian settlement in the United States.  The Mission is situated on beautifully landscaped grounds and is a quiet, peaceful place for all regardless of religious affiliation.   Pick up a brochure and follow the steps of the early Spanish settlers who began their worship...

This is a place where you can park (for free) and walk throughout the grounds without being bothered. There is no admission and the history it contains is amazing and well worth the trip. You can spend from 1/2 hour to a few hours based on what you want and how long you want to wander. It is right at... More
