Visiting Mission of Nombre de Dios was an amazing experience. The reverence and peace found on these grounds is hard to explain. St. Augustine is a very busy town, but once you are on these grounds the sounds seem to fade away (except for the occasional cannon blast from the nearby Fountain of Youth Park) I loved looking at all...

Discovered this by accident, while looking for new things to see while in St. Augustine this last time. What a lovely garden setting, with a pathway leading back to a 280 ft.

Take your time strolling through and enjoying this free attraction. It is a great outside place with a lot of history. Spend time strolling through this very peaceful place. It's worth the stop and a great way to spend an hour

I took my daughter this weekend to this Shrine and she started crying at how beautiful it was. I had been here a couple of times and I tell you the feeling is the same. This place is so peaceful that you can't help but feel closer to God. We were in the Shrine for about 45 minutes we lit... More

You don't have to be Catholic to really enjoy and appreciate these grounds & shrine. What lovely grounds to walk and learn a bit about St. Augustine history. Street parking was easy & convenient to the mission. On the grounds are a statue and towering cross, shrine, bridge over water, museum, etc. A pleasant surprise...we were glad we stopped!

The grounds are welcoming and peaceful. Just walking along the paths you get a feeling of serenity and peace. Then coming face-to-face with the 208 ft. "Great Cross"!!!!! This is a must-do on anyone's visit to St. Augustine and it's FREE!!

This humble temple has a long list of answered prayers and miracles. Not just for those of faith, but also great stop to make on a walking tour of St. Augustine.
