The primary reason to visit the 13th century church of Sant' Agostino is for its frescos of the life of St. Augustine and the Last Judgement by Gubbio's most famous artist, Ottaviano Nelli. The church makes for a nice stop when combined with a visit to the nearby Porta Romana, the sole survivor of the six 13th century towers that once guarded the entrances into the city. The tower/gate now houses a museum of beautiful antique Umbrian ceramics, including 3 rare majolica plates produced by Gubbio's Maestro Giorgio in the early 16th century. The streets surrounding Sant'Agostino and the Porta Romana are very picturesque and have some good local restaurants.
