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.

National Shrine of Our Lady of La Leche at Mission Nombre de Dios reviews
The walking bridge from the Museum is now open and of course to stroll around the grounds, to experience the stations of the cross in this holy place followed by the noon Mass is such a blessing. more »
The shrine is a beautiful place to get away from the bustle of St Augustine. You can see the old mission, see the peaceful gardens, and walk up to the intercostal. more »
I love to take walks around the cemetery. It is so serene and relax.
Clean and well-kept. A small museum with artifacts from Spanish Colonial missionaries and later Catholic missions in Florida.
