I was so glad we stopped in at this cathederal. It was beautiful. The fact that it is the oldest cathedral in the US makes it that much more historical. It was very peaceful to sit and pray for a few minutes.

This Spanish design cathedral is very unique and beautifully maintained. Worth the few minutes it takes for a self guided visit.

I believe the original was built in the 1500's. This is a beautiful Catholic Cathedral. Very opulent inside. Traditional of this type of church. Right in the heart of historic St Augustine.

This church is open to inspect and relax during the touring of the old city. Everything is in exceptionally great condition and gives a sense of peace and contentment.

A must-see for a walk-around tour in St Augustine. The artwork and decor is very impressive. A beautiful place to stop for a few minutes of quiet reflection.

Our trolley tour drove by this and it was a must see. It is the oldest church in the city, has a beautiful alter, and stained glass windows. There is a balcony in the back of the church that is gorgeous. Very nice place to see.

We enjoy visiting places of worship. This Cathedral is beautiful. If visiting the area, take the opportunity to enter it and sit in worship space to view the beauty of the building.
