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.

another, "want to see but never did. Well, we did.. It is a beautiful walk to the Cross and awesome little church and historic cemetery. I wish I had brought a bag of unsalted peanuts for the very curious squirrels everywhere.. Did not see "do not feed" signs but not sure if o.k. It was a very relaxing experience.

In the 5 times I have been to St. Augustine, I've always passed this one by. My 5th visit, I decided to walk the paths and take a look at the old church. This is a very peaceful and holy place - I was surprised at how calm I felt here sitting on the bench overlooking the water. I will... More

You don't have to be religious to enjoy this historic spot. Interesting sites loaded with history just there for the taking.

The chapel is in very good condition considering the age. It is located in a cemetery that holds the remains of many generations. Interred is both Confederate & Union soldiers too. It is also worth visiting the adjacent church which contains many items dating back to the 1600's as well as history of the area.

As a resident of St Augustine this is a place we go to again and again. The views of the inlet are stunning and the cross is quite majestic. The small free museum is unique and fascinating.(Donations accepted) The Lady of La Leche Shrine is so lovely to sit in and reflect or pray or just be. The grounds have... More
