  • Very nice place with pictures of local and southern state clergy. Also pictures and artifacts from Greece. The shrine area is like a tunnel area with painted icons on the walls and ceiling like in the Greek Orthodox Churches. These murals are absolutely beautiful! I visited while they were doing some renovations so I was told there is usually videos playing, but it was closed. If you're in the area, this is a great place to stop and learn some history. The gift shop was open and prices of items were very reasonable! The staff was extremely helpful and friendly! Although it's small, it's very beautiful. I'll definitely stop in again when I'm in the area.
  • Saw this nearly hidden shrine featured in a YouTube video and had never been there in all my trips to St. Augustine. It's beautiful inside with all the murals and altars. The Apostles Creed wall is pretty amazing. There is a gift shop inside as well. Add it to your places to explore.
