Religious sites of a variety of denominations can be found in St. Augustine, and many come with a lengthy history of the early settlers who founded them. Some came here in hopes of a better life, looking to establish their own beliefs freely. Others came to proclaim the faith in far off lands and serve the people. Sites like the Methodist church, Jewish temple, Greek Orthodox shrine and the Catholic Cathedral Basilica which dates back to the late 1700s, offer a glimpse into the lives of these early pioneers. Tour these religious sites and get a feel for their devotion and dedication to St. Augustine. Through establishing religious sites each denomination found a home in the New World and therefore added to the rich history of this city.
