A quiet spot with natural beauty that invites reflexion.

A lovely spot for photos and to clear the mind. For history lover, there is plenty of history in this place, adjacent to the Shrine of Our Lady of La Leche+.

Another site of historical significance. The shrine is beautiful as is the walk through the cemetery and garden. A must see!

My family and I visited on July 4th. The grounds are peaceful. We loved to chapel and wished we could've spent more time at it. Unfortunately the gift shop was closed that day so I made a special trip the following day to purchase some Christmas ornaments and a Celtic crucifix. We're not Catholic but the gift shop was worth... More

The museum (attached to the church) is beautifully laid out, and holds some amazing artifacts. Their volunteer docents have lots of information to share as well. Walk through to the Mission grounds and enjoy the tranquility.

We took our 3 teens and 1 pre teen to visit during 4th of July weekend. Outside of the heat index being that of Mars, it was an incredible visit. Great for photography lovers.

Even if you're not religious (which I am not) this place is amazing. It chalk full of heavy historical significance. This place marks where the Spanish landed on the New World. This the place where much of our collective history started and that cannot be overstated. Really enjoyed walking the grounds and the photo opportunities are abundant. Definitely worth a... More

So much peace here. It is a quiet shrine but there is lots of information. We walked and the children were very interested in the small shrines and the cemetery.

This little chapel sits perched on the edge of the water in St. Augustine. It's surrounded by oaks dripping with Spanish moss which makes it cool and inviting. The historical markers give helpful information about the site and the various benches, gravestones and markers make it a place of quiet peace. Inside the chapel is a perfect place for a... More

After a full day visiting the Fort and St George street, it was a nice quiet way to finish our visit in St Augustine. So well maintained and beautiful grounds.

We found this to be a fascinating area where you learned about the brave souls that went to great lengths to bring their religion to this new place and, faced so many difficulties in accomplishing this. The cemetary and historical markers all contribute to making this an eye-opening view of our religious beginnings in the New World.
