The San Agustin Church was founded by Fernando III and he donated it to the Augustine Friars. The construction started in 1328 with the Gothic style. However in 1623 the church was renovated. There are three naves, the central nave being the largest and having Plateresque decoration. There are plaster decorations and mural paintings that show scenes from the Creed and the Blessed Virgin Mary, the work of Cristobal Vela. There are frescos on the walls but many have deteriorated with time. The bell tower has two tiers and was constructed in the 16th century. The retables are rich with decoration. The church suffered much damage during the War of Independence and the French Invasion. The church was closed in the 1970’s and it was restored between 1981-1984 by the Ministry of Culture. Restoration continued between 1989 and 1992. In 2003 and 2006 more restoration was done on the church.
