My favorite part of this experience was that we were greeted prior to entering by a retired gentleman who gave us a run down on the church, and a brief overview of the area. It was a wonderfully novel idea of creating good will! But,...More

This is a must see when you go to St Augustine. It is a magnificent Cathedral. Upon entering, the sense of serenity and faith is evident. The design is simple with stained glass. Light a candle for that blessing you need.

This church is both historic and gorgeous. The inside design and alters are magnificent. I was pleased to have time to pray a decade of my rosary. One negative is rude tourist talking out loud and photographing everything.

Not much of the original structure left, it's all been renovated so there's nothing left of the orig. Not what we were expecting.

Our tiur guide was a direct descendant of the Minorcan people who came to st augustine from Spain a long time ago,she was very knowlegable and I would recommend a guide always a shse was bilingual. The basilica reminded me of Venice.

Nothing paid for in advance. Just show up and there's a docent inside that will assist. They only take gratuities for the tour

Pat G. No, you do not need a ticket. A collection will be taken up at the Offertory, but it is absolutely voluntary. In short, it would not cost you a penny, unless you want to donate.
