ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. – St. Augustine has been in the national spotlight before as the country's oldest cities and one of the prettiest.

But now it's getting more national kudos.

Memorial Presbyterian Church has been named one of the eight religious wonders in the U.S., a list comprised by CNN.

Visitors are often impressed with the story behind the building.

Henry Flagler, who built the church, dedicated it to his daughter after she died due to childbirth complications.

Flagler's design was inspired by European churches.
