Description

The Shrine is built on the site of the Avero House which was a 1972 University of Florida excavation site. It is dedicated to the first colony of Greek people who came to America in 1768 and consists of exhibits depicting the life of early Greeks in America and the development of the Greek Orthodox Church and St. Photios Chapel.

Mission

The Saint Photios Greek Orthodox National Shrine is a living memorial to the first Greek settlers on the American continent and to all the Greek Orthodox pioneers whose love of freedom and desire for a better life for themselves and their children brought them to this New World.
