Mission San Luis

About Mission San Luis

Mission San Luis is a community where Apalachee Indians and newcomers from Spain lived in close proximity drawn together by religion as well as military and economic purpose.

Modern day visitors to Mission San Luis discover a re-created community where time stands still. There they meet the people of San Luis going about the tasks that sustained life centuries ago. They walk the plaza where the Apalachees played their traditional ball games. They visit the most important structure in the Apalachee village, the council house, and also stop at the home of the Spanish Deputy Governor. Visitors are welcomed at the church built under the supervision of Franciscans, and at the friary where they lived. Mission San Luis is a very special place where history comes to life. Inside the visitor center you will experience artifacts and art in many forms.
