The Cathedral Basilica of St. Augustine (Spanish: Catedral basílica de San Agustín) is a historic cathedral in St. Augustine, Florida, and the seat of the Catholic Bishop of St. Augustine.

It is located at Cathedral Street between Charlotte and St. George Streets. Constructed over five years it was designated a U.S. National Historic Landmark on April 15, 1970. Its congregation, established in 1565, is the oldest Christian congregation in the contiguous United States.

The cathedral's eclectic facade is a combination of Spanish mission and Neoclassical styles. Spanish mission features include curving bell gables, limited fenestration, clay roof tiles, a semicircular tympanum, prominent statuary niche, and comparatively unadorned walls.

Neoclassical details surround the entry door; an entablature embellished with triglyphs is topped with a broken pediment above and supported by pairs of Doric columns below.

Beautiful

This was the highlight of my short visit to St Augustine. The interior of the cathedral Basilica is stunningly beautiful. The guide was very friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the cathedral. He shared so much information and gave us other sources to look up.
Not Only A Cathedral

Granted Basilica status because of it's beauty and history, this is an impressive Cathedral. Not sure why the ceiling is the color red it is. It is beautiful and visitors should come when they are not disturbing those attending Mass.
Excellent tour by knowledgeable guide.

Fascinating history. Cathedral has many gems of history that I did not know about. Priest from Havana who lived in courtyard is up for Sainthood.
