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. The chapel and many statues/ pictures stimulated many questions by the teenagers. Don't miss the gift shop, many treasures to find. My daughters are still wearing the Holy... More

Lovely place to walk and enjoy the well kept grounds any day of the week. However, if you are interested in the history you will want to visit when the museum is open which is over the week end. We were here on a Wednesday and could only rely on the signing at the cross and shrine to briefly describe... More

An oasis of respite and calm (although St. Aug is pretty chill as it is) with lovely garden paths lined with remarkable, interesting, and educational plagues, markers, and artifacts. The size of the cross is staggering and the age, tranquility, and serenity of the small chapel is inspirational.

To me this is always the first stop when in St. Augustine, once you walk across the bridge feelings of peace and calmness surround you. A beautiful piece of history, and a place to sit and think or just relax and pray. ,

I love this meandering walk! The little church with the tiny burial plot of these faithful servants of God was very impressive to me,. I felt a worshipful experience. The gift shop has beautiful inexpensive souvenirs,

Having been to a number of historic churches and some Catholic missions/shrines in the Southwest, my husband and I were expecting something very different. As another reviewer mentioned, those wishing to worship will find a beautiful, meditative place. 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
