Call ahead to make sure it's open. Better yet try for a Sunday service when the grand organ is in use. Short narration by docent is quiet informative. The building's story and grand architecture make it a must for any visit to the ancient city. Modeled on St Mark's, Venice.

We stopped to see the history in the building. We were about to show ourselves around and purchase small souvenirs. Parking can be difficult. Quick stop for a beautiful church.

Built in less than a year by Henry Flagler to honor his daughter. Amazing architecture and wonderfully rich in history - not to be missed.

The gardens are mature and open to the public, a quiet spot to sit and rest while touring around town. Spend a few minutes viewing the tiles in the benches and on the walks as well as the beautiful windows and gorgeous architecture.

If you do not have a regular church, go here. They are all very friendly and very welcoming. Our entire family occasionally go here and always feel at home.

The church and the grounds are amazing. The story behind the church is very interesting. A must see when in St. Augustine!

I think one of the previous posts was mistaken that church is currently undergoing renovation. I was there on the same day as the previous reviewer, and it is definitely open to visitors. The Catholic Cathedral Basilica off the town square is the one undergoing renovations and is closed to visitors. The Memorial Presbyterian Church is also the resting place... More

I remember this beautiful church from my last visit 20 years ago. Unfortunately lots of restoration going on, areas fenced and boarded, lots of traffic and photo op folks. We did get to see a beautiful bride on her big day! Too bad she was surrounded by plywood ans fencing!

Since I love to take photographs, this place has so many features to capture. The exterior is complex and difficult to get into a single picture, but it is worth the time to get so many different angles. The interior ceiling and stained glass windows are beautiful. Worth trying to catch this church when it is open. We missed the... More
