The Sant'Agostino Church was erected around 1247 by the Hermits of St. Agustine.
It is one of Rimini's most imposing and remarkable churches, and boasts the city's tallest bell-tower.
The best-preserved sections of the original Romanesque-Gorthic structure are the apse and the bell-tower.
Restored several times during the centuries, in 1618 the interior was remodelled in Baroque style, and later decorations by Bibbiena were added in 1720.
Its frescoes are the only surviving works by the thirteenth-century Rimini school.
