The Church of San Agustín was part of the Convent of San Juan Letrán, founded in the first half of the 16th century and occupied at the end of it, by the Augustinian fathers.

It acquired some importance locally as a school teaching subjects like Art, Philosophy and Grammar. In the 19th century it fell into decline until the expulsion of order during the confiscation of Mendizabal.

Of the complex only the church remains, which emphasizes the statue of the Nazarene, which enjoys great popular fervor of all the local people.
