About San Augustin

The Temple of Saint Augustin, known as Templo y Ex-Convento de San Agustin, is a sixteenth century historic church in the village of Acolman in Mexico.

Constructed by Augustinian friars between 1539 and 1560, San Agustin is a great example of sixteenth century architecture, particularly its façade, which exhibits a plateresque-style and its beautiful atrium.

Now a museum featuring paintings and artifacts, this is a good excursion if you’re visiting the nearby site of Teotihuacan.
