Cathedral Basilica Of Saint Augustine

Cathedral Basilica Of Saint Augustine

First completed in 1565 of pine posts and cypress fronds by the founders of the city and continually restructured until 1788, this Spanish Colonial and Renaissance Revival Roman Catholic cathedral was the first of its kind to be established in the United States. Today, visitors can see the original coquina stone walls and façade, attend daily Mass, and view the intricate stained glass windows.

We hope you enjoy our work.
