Tolomato Cemetery, St. Augustine

Cemetery · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
Tolomato Cemetery (Spanish: Cementerio de Tolomato) is a Catholic cemetery located on Cordova Street in St. Augustine, Florida. The cemetery was the former site of "Tolomato", a village of Guale Indian converts to Christianity and the Franciscan friars who ministered to them. The site of the village and Franciscan mission is noted on a 1737 map of St. Augustine. A cemetery for the inhabitants of the village was also located on the grounds, with a portion of this cemetery set aside for former American black slaves, who had converted to Catholicism after escaping bondage in the Carolinas.
The location of Tolomato was just outside the city across from the Rosario Line, a defensive line constructed in the First Spanish Period, which consisted of an earthen embankment planted with cactus and Yucca gloriosa, also known as Spanish daggers.

  • A small cemetery in downtown historic St Augustine. We came on Sat for a guided tour, made a donation for the upkeep since tours were free. Very educational definitely worth going inside.
  • A historical place but a bit spooky.
