If you like churches...stop here! Very colorful and pretty inside. I liked that the Blessed Sacrament was separated from the church proper by a curtain. This allows for private devotion away from the tourists.

I visited this cathedral as part of tour earlier this month. It is absolutely gorgeous. Mass was not going on at the time. The stained glass windows are beautiful and the staff there (docent's) are very helpful and enthusiastic.

Right in the heart of st. Augustine, the architecture and designs are well worth a visit. Sunday services have a beautiful choir.
