San Agustín Church is now what was once the monastery for hermit monks in the order of the namesake saint. The original Medieval building was covered later by baroque and classical ornamentation, though a more recent attempt was made to recreate the original gothic style. Although the church is today a part of the hustle and bustle of the city centre - it's located near Norte Station, it was originally in the middle of the fields, far from the old walls of the city. When you enter this church, there really is a sense of solemnity to it, and the huge windows around the main altar let in warm sunlight, creating the marvellous effect of peace and tranquility, exactly what the original monks were looking for.
