A nice peaceful retreat from St. Augustine’s tourist traps. The website said that it’s not open for tours on Fridays. Friday was when we walked by and there were so many people walking in/out that we stopped in as well. Its Spanish style sets it apart from most other Catholic cathedrals. The vibrant red ceiling with dark beams was unique.... More

Beautiful Spanish style which is different from most Catholic cathedrals. Very unique and we'll worth a visit.

We were met inside this beautiful basilica by a docent who gave us many interesting details about the paintings and the stained glass. If you like cathedrals you shouldn't miss this!

Most of us come to St. Augustine for the history, at least in part, and this church is certainly a good part of that history. The architecture and the art work is awe-inspiring, while the location and price (free) can't be beat. Someday I'll come back and experience an actual Mass there, a suggestion I'd make no matter your denomination... More

I had not been in the church for a few years and they freshened up the interior. Very distinct red ceiling. It is not a large church but a reminder of missionary times.

I would make it a must see place to visit. Beautiful stain glass. The architecture inside and out is amazing! There is a small gift shop. Candles (to light) are $5 and $10.00. Quiet reflective!
