Trip Planner: USA / Florida / St. Augustine / National Shrine of Our Lady of La Leche at Mission Nombre de Dios
The history of National Shrine of Our Lady of La Leche at Mission Nombre de Dios dates back to Europe's early settlers on what's now U.S. soil. Florida's first Spanish settlers founded the mission in the second half of the 16th century as the religious center and a way to spread the Christian faith among the local Native American tribes. The land, close to the spot where Pedro Menendez de Aviles landed in 1565--marked by a 62 m (204 ft) tall cross--now hosts several churches and shrines. You can enjoy the serene atmosphere, visit holy sites, the mission's museum, monuments, and historic landmarks. Donations are accepted.

A must visit. Reflective and a lovely place to stop for a moment and pray, or just enjoy the beautiful grounds. Folks in the gift shop were kind and very knowledgeable about the history. more »
