      Mission San Luis is a museum and living history center that recreates and interprets the mission and fort that stood on this site from the 1600s until it was destroyed by fire in 1704. With a mixture of Native and Spanish cultures, clergy and military, the mission/ fort complex offers a fascinating glimpse of life in seventeenth century Florida. Archaeological excavation is ongoing, and the artifacts already uncovered are extensive and intriguing. The recreated structures include the chapel, the fort and, most amazingly, the enormous Council House that really makes you wonder what kind of construction techniques the Natives used. Costumed interpreters and demonstrations of blacksmithing and other skills offer additional enrichment of your visit.

      If you go:
      Open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 to 4. Very modest admission charge, and well worth the money. Check website for calendar of special events.
