This church is a step back in time. The person on duty gave us some interesting facts and pointed out the Flagler tomb which is on site.

We visited the church on Palm Sunday between services. The church is absolutely beautiful and rivals some of the cathedrals and abbeys I visited in Europe as a teen. The docent was on duty and was more than happy to answer any questions that visitors might have. A must-see for any history/architectural buffs!

Self-guided tour, free (small donation suggested)... Very nice stained glass windows... The Flagler memorial area was exceptional, especially the ceiling....

One of the most beautiful churches that I have seen, the architecture of the building had me guessing. A variety of influences involved. It's free (I did leave a small donation in the bowl) and well worth the visit.

Doing some face work on the old church. Ignore it and go inside. They've redone some of the alcoves, have a beautiful shrine to St. Patrick now and the stained glass is incredible. Don't miss out.

We're not religious, but I wanted my children's first experience in a church to be a memorable one. This definitely was a great place to take them to see and learn about how people worship. Big plus for the rich history and small "museum" type artifacts inside that highlighted the tragedy of Flagler's daughter and granddaughter. The 5000 pipe organ... More

Gold tours took us into this church and told us history about Henry Flagler. The church is absolutely gorgeous inside and out. I thought it was a lil creepy when seeing the tombstones but it makes sense.

a very unique piece of saint augestine. when I looked through the church I noticed that every thing was beautifully constructed and full of interesting details. you could look for hours and never catch every detail. it also had many pieces of history in it. these include the body of Henry Flagler, a 19th century bible and a table sat...
