Ex-Chiesa Sant'Agostino, Bergamo: 2 reviews and 2 photos
The Church of St Augustin was the only big monument which was salvaged during the construction of the Venetian Walls. It is the huge complex with St. Augustin Convent and the church itself is deconsacrated today.
The church has Gothic-Romanesque facade with the beautiful rosette and the niche with the statue of St Augustin.
The Convent was founded by the Augustinian hermits in 1290 and the church was consacrated in 1347. It was rebuilt in 1442 after a fire broke out caused by the warring Guelphs and Ghibellines at the beginning of the 15th century. It became an important cultural centre and hosted many illustrious friars. This is why it was spared from the pick axe demolition squads at the time of the construction of the Venetian Walls.
