Welcome To
Ximenez-Fatio House

Rated a top tourist attraction in St. Augustine, FL
by TripAdvisor

Within the coquina walls of the Ximenez-Fatio House Museum is a vivid recreation of how people lived in the years after Florida became a new territory of the United States, and then a state. Our guides are experts on that colorful period in St. Augustine’s past. Travel back in time with them as you tour our rooms and learn about the intrepid, sophisticated women who owned the property and operated it as an exclusive inn, as well as the visitors who wintered with them from the 1830s through the 1850s.

This unique house museum is a dynamic learning project. As historical research, archaeological exploration and advanced structural analysis continue, it continues to provide new information about St. Augustine’s first tourism boom.

Explore South of the Plaza

The area immediately south of St. Augustine’s central plaza is the oldest historic district in North America. The Spanish chose this high ground for a settlement in 1572, and it has been continuously occupied ever since. Today, South of the Plaza is picturesque, vibrant, dotted with highly rated bed & breakfasts and eateries, and a welcome surprise for those who venture beyond the more congested parts of town.
