We've been there several times and always have a photo by the quiet pond. There's 200 foot cross, history, cemetery with very old graves, and a lovely little shop. If you like history, there is a lot to learn here. They'll give you a map of the walking trail. Prayed at the shrine last year for my daughter (July); she... More

We went here on a whim. Though a hot day we enjoyed walking the grounds and seeing the mission. The gift shop on the grounds provides a cool respite on hot days.

Agree with others this is a serene and peaceful place to be. We too saw the cross and decided to check it out. We loved it! Drenched in history and charm.

A wonderful break from the more active and commercial areas of St Augustine. My wife and I love just walking the paths and cooling off under the beautiful and ancient Spanish moss laden-ed trees. The burial site and the mission date from the 1600's through 1700's. There are nice statues and gardens as well as a nice pond.

This is a quiet place to see old structures and little notes, trivia and history of the place. Based on the structures found here this place is centuries old. If you are spiritual and would like to take a time off from the hustle and bustle fo the city, this is a nice place to visit.

What a beautiful mission- lovely, tranquil, historic, and spiritually moving! We will definitely be returning to this site, as we didn't have time to read all of the historic markers in the prayer garden

I wouldn't go out of my way to visit it, but if you're in the area and want to get away from all the other tourists it's worth a visit.
