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.

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

Lovely, serene, peaceful, a place to pray and reflect. Chapel is lovely, Gift shop nice. Historical as the place of the first Christian mass in the first settlement in the USA.

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.
