Create an itinerary including 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.

  • I stopped into the Fig Tree shop this afternoon after getting a sponsored ad on Facebook, and I’m so glad I did! I bought a few dozen jars of goodies and the ladies in the gift shop were so helpful. They carefully packaged and bagged all of my treats and waited while I went and pulled my car around.. then even helped load up my car! The historical site is absolutely stunning and the staff are A+! I will be back. :)
  • I would highly recommend this place! Good for all ages.
