“Beautiful grounds loaded with history.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

It is so peaceful and quiet on the most sacred acre in the country, a must to visit. St. Augustine's and America's birthplace is amazing. To see where St Augustine was founded almost 450 years ago in 1565.

“Quiet little sanctuary”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

We stopped here on the trolley turn and really enjoyed the solitude after hectic St George Street. There is a cemetary and shaded benches to contemplate the serenity. The museum was closed on a weekday so did not have the opportunity to see that. A nice break from the tourist areas and nice to take a moment to relax.

“Enjoyed more than I thought I would.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

I currently have a son attending a Catholic college, and though we are not a Catholic family he wanted to visit here while in St. Augustine. I thought it would be a quick trip, in and out but we actually spent about 1.5 hours on the grounds. It is very scenic and the historic significance adds a lot to the visit. We had a 5 and 7 year old and after trips to museums and historic houses they were happy to run around the lakes while the older kids walked the grounds. We came away with a lot of beautiful photos and it was worth the time spent, plus its free.

“Very Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

To be honest, I wasn't a fan of the inside of the church, it looked a bit blah! However, take the trail over the bridge, see the tombstones that are over a 100 years old, the little mission house or whatever you'd like to call it, the front is covered in ivy and it's beautiful.

“Great walk!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

Great walk, beautiful statues around the shrine. The gigantic cross with/teal blues statues is a most see. Peaceful place to explore.
