This is the most serene place I've ever visited. Love the cross, walking through the cemetery, watching the movie in the museum -- everything.

If you are feeling a bit overwhelmed, it's a great place to go and chill and get your calm back. Not sure that it's a must see though.

Visiting this place, where the first Catholic Mass was celebrated centuries ago, is a moving experience. Places for exterior and interior reflections abound. The chapel and statue of Our Lady as a nursing mother evoke enriched meaning of the Holy Family.

After walking around St. Augustine you can't miss seeing the giant cross from many locations. My curiosity got the better of me and we had to go check it out, I am so glad that we did. The Cross itself is really beautiful but the...More

The Catholic Diocese is asking for a zoning change to put in an amphitheater and parking garage on this Holy site. If you care about historical significance of this place, please write to the St. Augustine planning and zoning board!

One cannot understand the history of St Aug without knowing the religious ties. This mission is called "sacred acres" and rightly so.

We stumbled upon this magnificent shrine while walking in St. Augustine. Little did I know that this was the first shrine in the United States dedicated to the Blessed Mother. You definitely feel the presence of the Holy Spirit there and immediately know you are...More
