If you're in St Augustine and you need a quiet break, be sure to make a stop here. Not Catholic? No problem; neither am I, but that won't stop you from enjoying the gorgeous views, and the serene nature of the site. Plus, it's a great stop for the history buff. I was surprised to find a lovely little cemetery... More

The cross, grounds and views are extremely peaceful and beautiful. I truly want to come back here and spend more time to take it all in and reflect.

We always visit the cross when we come to down. Not only is it gorgeous, the grounds are so peaceful and the views and photo opportunities are spectacular. We always have devotions at the foot of this amazing cross.

What a breath of fresh air! When all is going crazy with traffic, crowds, and parking fines, escape to the Mission. No charge for parking or for entrance onto the grounds. Spend fifteen minutes or hours walking and reflecting upon the beauty of the place. Take time to go inside the tiny church building. Sit down and say a quiet... More

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...
