This small vine covered Roman Catholic chapel is located in the historic district of St. Augustine, Florida.  As the accompanying sign mentions, it’s the fourth building at the location dating back to 1615 with the most recent reconstruction in 1915.   This is considered the first shrine in the United States dedicated to the Virgin Mary. The chapel is surrounded by large grounds that include a cemetery and various memorials as part of the larger Mission Nombre de Dios (“Name of God”).
