Search Church of Sant'Agostino:

The church of St. Augustine, sumptuous example of medieval art, is one of the most mysterious monuments of the city. It was built built in the 13th century by Hermann von Salza, Grand Master of the Order and friend of Frederick II. Originally the church was devoted to St. Leonard, patron of the Teutonic Knights, but then in 1358, the Duke Francesco I del Balzo gave the complex to the Augustinian friars who restored it and renamed it Church of St. Augustine. The late Gothic portal with pointed arches carved and totally full of Teutonic symbols. Inside you can find some frescoes of St. Augustine. On the back side, space currently dedicated to a local market, you can see a cloister with a large colonnade which was probably part of an old convent behind the church and belonged to the Templars themselves. The main points of interests are the Gothic-style gates, with precious reliefs and crests of the Del Balzo and d'Anjou families, as well as the Teutonic eagles.
