Trip Planner: USA / Florida / St. Augustine / The Ximenez-Fatio House
One of St. Augustine's oldest historical sites, The Ximenez-Fatio House is the best preserved of the city's colonial buildings. The property was managed by a series of businesswomen who are also an important part of the area’s history. In fact, the house is also known as Ms. Fatio's House, referring to the woman who was manager when it was the only boarding house in town. Furnishings and decor recall both the 16th century, when an earlier structure stood on the site, and the 19th century, when the boarding house operated. Each room is carefully decorated with textiles, personal decor, and tools that make the house still feel lived in. Join a guided tour through the kitchen, washroom, and guest rooms. Tours take place throughout the day; reservations are not necessary. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, St. Augustine holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the The Ximenez-Fatio House and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

We thoroughly enjoyed the audio tour, an excellent historical reference. So much to see. I think we were there for 2 hours.

Very unique experience. We went to this place as early as it opened and were the only 2 visitors there at the time, so we really took our time to see everything and to hear the explanations about each and every room. It was really interesting and unique to be at a place where people used to live and visit so long ago. The staff were super nice, there is a cute little gift shop and very clean restrooms. It was about 12$ per person (no discount for students unfortunately) but I think it was totally worth it.
Hidden history that’s being told! This is a must see. Live actors in real life history situations. Very well researched. This is a secret gem in St Augustine. Parking is an issue but I eve your there all is good. Close to restaurants and the historic library.
