The Church of San Agustin is also known as Church of San Francisco el Nuevo. Built between 1608-1663 under the patronage of St. Augustine. In 1842 it became the property of the Third Order of St. Francis & in 1844 the Franciscan friars of the First Order. In 1866 the Franciscans had to leave the church due to Spanish laws of secularization but were reinstated in 1896 by the Obispo Diocese. It falls into disrepair by 1919 but undergoes some renovations in 1925. The Franciscans once again have to abandon the church in 1966, once again by the ruling government but this time shutting down all religion. By 1987 the church is occupied once again but remained closed to the public with the Historians Office of Havana starting important renovations by 2002-3. It opened for regular church service in 2008.
Amazing church with beautiful interior. The staff invited us in after a wedding, if they are open and you can go it you should.
