Mission Nombre de Dios

You can tell just by looking at this photo that the La Leche shrine at Nombre de Dios is a peaceful place. The doors are always open, and even if you’re not a spiritual person, you can still appreciate the simple beauty found within. Take some time to read the historical plaques located on the outside of the building. Though there’s been a chapel at this spot since the 1600s, the current building dates from about 1914, and was constructed to resemble the Spanish missions of yore.

St. George Street

St. Augustine has countless photo ops; you only need to look. Here’s a view of some reconstructed 18th century outbuildings seen from inside the centuries-old De Mesa-Sanchez House. (I can’t recommend this house enough. Few people, beautiful furnishings, peaceful setting, centuries of history. And possibly haunted . . .).
