This is the most beautiful and spectacular church and the history behind it is amazing. To build something so grand to memorialize your daughter, is just beautiful. The fact it was built in 361 days is unbelievable! To see the craftsmanship and skill it took to do this by hand and candle light could not be replicated today by any... More

This is beautiful... It is currently closed due to renovations for the 450 birthday of St. Augustine, but if you can get in... You should, it is beyond stunning

The church is beautifully kept and generously shared by the current congregation. The setting provides a peek into the past of the wealth found in St. Augustine.

CNN named this church one of the eight religious wonders of the US and when you go there you will learn why. It is breathtaking - from the gorgeous architecture on the outside to the stained glass windows. The people at the the 10:00 am service were very welcoming and the service was wonderful. If you don't make it to... More

This church was dedicated in 1890. This church was built by Henry Flagler and no expense was spared to make it truly beautiful. There are Docents to help you with information. There is no fee to enter but a donation is appreciated. The stain glass windows, lighting fixtures, the pipe organ, pulpit and chapel rooms are must sees. This church... More

My husband and I visited this church twice and saw new things each time we went. Absolutely one of the best churches to visit from architectural and aesthetic perspectives and very peaceful.

The building has amazing architecture. The interior of the church is magnificent. The chandeliers, stain , baptismal font and the history of this church were worth the visit. This is also the resting place of Henry Flagger. If you like architecture and history this is the right place

One of the most beautiful churches I have ever seen. Every detail is exquisite. The cross chandeliers are breathtaking. It is amazing the church was built in less than 1 year. What a lovely place to sit, pray and reflect.
