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.

I loved visiting this area it was so peaceful and the museum was very interesting. The weather was very warm but yet walking around the grounds it didn't seem that hot.

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

After riding on the tour tram for a while our 6 year old was getting restless so we stopped here to let her walk around and get rid of some excess energy. We had no idea we would love this place as much as we did. It was beautiful, serene and our daughter was captivated by the beauty of the... More

Beautiful grounds on the water with plenty of shady oaks. However, difficult to fully enjoy due to large qty of homeless population seeking shade and hogging up all the swings and benches. Interesting walking through history and life tributes in the large cemetary. Good place to slow and relax away from busy historic downtown.

There aren't many places around the city to get away from the touristy action but here. This is a place I visit every time I come to st. Augie. Seems that I always need to give my Friend a few minutes of my day to thank Him for all I have and don't have. The chapel is small and quaint... More

For the past six years I have worked at near-by Jacksonville for summer employment. As a U.S. history teacher, I absolutely love this place. Free of the crass materialism that has overrun such a historical gem in St. Augustine, this is a beautiful, peaceful place. Although not a Roman Catholic, I feel closer to God here than anyplace I have... More
