The historical Cathedral Basilica of St. Augustine is the seat of the Roman Catholic bishop of St. Augustine. First established in the 1560s, the cathedral was named a National Historic Landmark in 1970. The Spanish Colonial-style cathedral that stands today is the fourth attempt to establish a lasting church in the city. The three previous buildings burned down: once due to natural causes and twice from British attacks. Today's cathedral was built from coquina stone quarried from nearby to help make it more fireproof. Visit "America's First Parish" for a closer look at the colonial history of this quaint town. The church's interiors have been undergoing some reconstruction, so you might need to duck under scaffolding.

Cathedral Basilica of St. Augustine reviews
Travelers, St Augustine is beautiful. There are so many things to do and see there. Walking through town was fun and interesting. The cathedral is very beautiful. It seemed very old and European. This is worth the trip to this magical city. Enjoy.
Gorgeous old historic cathedral, one of the nicest I have seen actually. although some of the statuary can be confusing to non-Catholics. Tourists are is welcome when religious services are not underway - please be respectful of hours. I was very impressed with all the attention to detail in every part of this important Church.
