|About these ratings|
This reconstructed Spanish Franciscan mission gives a sneak peek into 17th-century life. Visitors can take self-guided tours of the 60 acres, exploring the tribal council house, church and residential areas of the Spanish settlers and Apalachee Indians that once lived there. "From the moment I entered the gates, it felt as though the life of 2011 had been left outside and I was back in 1618," one TripAdvisor tourist comments. Also consider visiting on a weekend so that you can opt for a ranger-led tour of the facilities -- especially as other TripAdvisor vacationers particularly recall the mission's knowledgeable and friendly staff.
Located in western Tallahassee, the Mission San Luis de Apalachee is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Tuesdays through Sundays. Admission will cost you between $2 and $5, dependent on age. Check out the official website for more information.
