The church and former monastery of San Agustín
The monastery building still has many of its original features despite the various architectural alterations it has undergone since the 18th century. One of those elements is the Renaissance-style inner cloister. This was the first university and the secondary school in the Canary Islands for a long time, with such distinguished alumni as Benito Pérez Galdós, Óscar Domínguez and Juan Negrín. All that remains of the church are its ruins since it was consumed by a fire in 1964. The original rectangular structure is best seen from the outside, with three naves separated by Roman arches.
