The beauty of St Augustine, at least from my perspective, is in its architecture. In the centre of town you can’t walk a block without seeing some kind of stunning building or other.
A lot of that is owing to the vision of the industrialist Henry Flagler, who is responsible for Memorial Presbyterian (see yesterday’s post), and a number of the old hotels (now in other use) around the town centre. His vision for a resort town in St Augustine eventuated in these two incredible building, the Ponce de Leon Hotel, which is now the main campus for Flagler College a liberal arts university and the Alcazar Hotel (now the Lightner Museum). The gallery contains a couple of bonus images… the constitution monument, and the Cathedral Basilica of St. Augustine, the catholic basilica at the bottom of the popular George St.
