Continue south to peruse the shops, galleries and one-of-a-kind boutiques along St. George Street, and perhaps pick up your first St. Augustine souvenir, if you haven’t already! Zigzag over to Sevilla Street to see the magnificent Memorial Presbyterian Church. Its Venetian Renaissance architecture and ornate detail rival that of the finest churches in Europe. Further south, Sevilla meets King Street and Flagler College, a fabulous masterpiece of Spanish Renaissance architecture. The college was formerly the Ponce de Leon Hotel, the first of the grand hotels built by Henry Flagler.
Cross over to Lightner Museum for your first lunch at the bottom of an historic indoor swimming pool – Café Alcazar occupies the deep end! The museum, formerly the elegant Alcazar Hotel, houses a collection of Victorian treasures; take them in after lunch, or pick up pieces of the past at the antique mall surrounding the pool. The Oldest House Museum Complex on St. Francis Street will be your southernmost stop. It includes the González-Alvarez House, two museums, a changing exhibition gallery, an ornamental garden and a museum store.
