Mission San Luis was the center of Spanish/Native American life in Florida from 1656 to 1704. Now visitors can return to that 17th century world by visiting the Mission’s reconstructed buildings, museum and grounds. Costumed interpreters go about their lives, giving demonstrations and just generally making the Mission that much more real. Features include the reconstructed fort, a thatched council house, a church, various homes, and a blacksmith’s shop where visitors can watch tools and nails being made on the spot. The museum is packed with amazing Indian artifacts and Spanish colonial art. The grounds are pleasant as well, with grassy areas to roam about and even a nature trail. Mission San Luis is educational and enjoyable for families – there is so much to see and do, the kids will never know they’re having a cultural experience, just an afternoon of fun!
