Discover the Legend of the St. Augustine Love Trees
Ask five different St. Augustine residents about the love trees and you might get five different answers. Some may say they’re lovers caught in an eternal embrace while others will say they cast a spell to keep lovers together. Others will simply say they’re two trees that have grown together over centuries. Regardless of their origins, the tree symbolizes the love and commitment that comes with a relationship. The legend of the trees states that if you kiss beneath one of the trees, you and your partner will enjoy everlasting love.
Find the Love Trees
No one really knows how many love trees there are in St. Augustine. At least seven have been found in the city, mainly in our downtown district. Simply St. Augustine has the most complete list of love trees in the city, complete with pictures and directions on how to find them. This is a great resource to use if you’d like to go directly to one of the trees. Many visitors prefer to hunt for them without help, finding the journey to the trees as much fun as the kiss underneath them.
