Great to see while passing by on a trolly tour. Would not go see on my own.
Centered closely to many other attractions. Historical.

It’s a big tree. It’s located in the parking lot of a cheap motel. There is no signage to indicate why it is important. I guess it’s old and has some significance relating to the founding of St. Augustine, as the Fountain of Youth Park where this occurred is just up the street.

This is one of those things that adds culture and uniqueness to the tours through St. Augustine. Yes, it’s just a tree but it has also got a cool backstory. It’s unique as it has a palm tree growing through the center of it and it’s heart shaped. It’s also over 650 years old. Legend has it if you kiss someone under the tree, you’ll be with them forever.

This is one of the stops on the on/off trolley tour and they’ll stop under the tree so there is no need to make a special trip here.

Big old tree. Maybe the biggest old tree in the city. Still its a big old tree. I need to use 100 words - still just a big old tree.

What a neat old tree. So big around. Near the Fountain of Youth in the middle of a motel parking lot! Worth a stop then walk to the FofY through the Spanish moss trees

I wanted to love it....especially since I talked my traveling companion into searching for it with me. We drove by it several times and then walked to it and finally realized we were looking at it. It's a lovely tree.....but it's not worth going out of your way to see. It's in the middle of a motel parking lot which I guess takes away from it. Having said that - I didn't hate it and I'm sure if I were staying at the motel, I would enjoy it - but there are many other attractions nearby that are more worthy of my time.

Great story and beautiful site. We stayed at Villa 1565 so the tree was the site of our breakfast coffee and evening cocktail each night. Easy to walk to from the exit of the Fountain of Youth-less than a block. Not much to “do” but glad we got to see it in person. Could use more in situ explanations and history information on plaques for visitors NOT on the trolley tour.

This is a very old tree with a great story! We were on a trolley tour and they take you through the hotel parking lot to see the tree

Free to stop and check out. Saw along the trolley tour and then came back for a relaxing sit under the tree. It’s massive lol. Stop by and check it out
