The Basilica is a true monument to the catholic religion. I attended early morning weekday mass and then toured the church. It's beautiful. Please don't miss this on your tour of St. Augustine. It's worth your time.

We had a tour of the church by a very knowledgeable tour guide. Made for an interesting tour. The history of the church was interesting, and the tour guide was very personable and made it easy to ask questions.

The interior of this gorgeous Catholic cathedral is a must see on your trip to St. Augustine. The tour guide was most informative and we had plenty of opportunities to ask questions and take pictures.

I'm sorry we only visit in the summer. It's a fully functional church so I would say yes. You can always google their name.
