Interesting house, haunted, with a lot of history here. I would highly recommend coming here, it is like rolling back your clocks to a former era. Beautiful, well kept, and the staff is very friendly.

Very educational on the life style in the 17 and 1800's. Staff was well informed. For a small and out of the way tour this is one of the hidden gems in St Augustine.

We finally made it to the Ximenez-Fatio House tour. We were a little confused as to why the house was so small. We then found out that what we thought was the house is merely the gift-shop. The house is quite large. After a 10-minute...More
