The large metal cross that can be seen from miles away, is breathtaking! The grounds are filled with religious statues and history not to be missed. The Catholic Store is filled with gems... More

My first visit to the Mission was in 1983. They have kept the Mission and the grounds and it looks amazing. The ladies in the gift shop were very pleasant and helpful. There is also a new museum near the church that has several artifacts from the Mission as well as the 'pirate's casket'. Didn't know the history of the... More

The grounds, the water view, the history! We toured the museum and had 3 guides tell us the history of Menendez, and received a beautiful photo of the 207 foot cross over the beautiful water view. Highly recommended.

Enjoy the peaceful grounds, the historical significance and the wonderful views of the water. Catholics may get slightly more enjoyment but most all will appreciate. Some great photo opportunities are available as well.

We visited Mission of Nombre de Dios the day we were leaving St. Augustine. It was a perfect way to end a hectic and fun couple of days. In order to reach the church, you need to walk across a beautiful and well kept garden. It includes a historic cemetery and the Great Cross, which can be seen from Old... More

The grounds are very pretty and have informational signs to tell about the history of the location and buildings. It is a neat place to stroll around and learn some interesting facts.

This was a great spiritual place to visit, whether you are religious or not...just he thought of how old the building is, to see the graves of those who started this beautiful place, to walk around the gardens and wonder the age of the trees and foliage, just peaceful, holy grounds, not matter what your religion...Nice place to meditate, gather...
