Lived in St Augustine for ten years and visited for many many years before. The Mission is one of St A's beautiful and religious landmark in the middle of town. Many people visit there each year but it always feels peaceful and serene. Beautiful grounds, lovely little chapel for prayers and quiet reflection, an extensive gift shop for religious and... More

Extraordinarily peaceful site for reflection or prayer. Situated on the bay and open every day. We have visited before but this time, there were displays of recent excavations revealing significant historic finds. Fascinating!

We visited one Saturday, late afternoon. The grounds were nice and well taken care of, but it was very crowded. There were 6 tour busses in the parking lot, but we didn't see the crowds until we walked over to the area of the little mission, which is very little. There wasn't a lot to see and we finished in...

Another must see location on a St Augustine vacation. Take time to tour the cemetery and view to Lady of Le Leche.

The walk through the mission grounds is very peaceful. Everything is beautifully maintained. The history and symbolism is such that everyone can enjoy and appreciate it. The setting is very tranquil.

This is a very exciting place where the Spaniards celebrated their first religious services upon coming to America shortly after Christopher Columbus discovery and travels.Very beautiful spiritual as well as historic place.

I would recomend this place. The property if very peaceful. I had stopped off here to stretch my legs and walk aroud during the trolley tour. There is also a small Shrine on the property also just in case if you wanted to stop and pray too. I would love to come back and spend more time there.

a small group of singers use this awesome chapel to sing gregorian chant on certain days of the month. the grounds are holy grounds and they are beautiful and inspiring if only because of the history. think of it as a lovely park, by the water with a catholic over-tone

Loved the missions in San Antonio, so had to see this one. While it has a different feel then those missions, it still has a very serene and peaceful quailty to it. Ocean nearby and the landing site makes this a unique and often missed attraction. Take the time to make a stop and walk around even if only for... More

Neat chapel tucked away near large cross is in St. Augustine. I donate everytime I visit. So glad it is open for prayer and is preserved. Nice gift shop at entrance /exit.
