Church of Sant'Agostino in Agira


 Discesa Rosselli, 8 - Agira (EN)

The Church of Sant'Agostino in Agira was built in 1512, on the ruins of the medieval church of SS. Trinity. Over the centuries it has undergone different stylistic alterations and has hosted various functions.
The regular presence of Augustinians in the city of Agira also dates back to 1512, obtaining the medieval church of SS. Trinity which will be dedicated to St. Augustine. The convent attached to the church remained active until 1867. With the disappearance of the Augustinians, the building was used in various ways to house municipal offices, prisons and schools.
The main façade has undergone various restorations that make it difficult to read the original architecture: it has a classical appearance with a summit pediment. An annular staircase connects the entrance of the church to the street level.
The interior, with a single nave, is decorated with longitudinal stuccoes and folders with a semicircular choir.
The courtyard of S. Agostino until the 1950s was used for prisoners. Once the prison is closed, the locals now welcome an environmental association while other areas are used as municipal warehouses.
