The Sant'Agostino Church was erected around 1247 by the Hermits of St. Agustine.
It is one of Rimini's most imposing and remarkable churches, and boasts the city's tallest bell-tower.
The best-preserved sections of the original Romanesque-Gorthic structure are the apse and the bell-tower.
Restored several times during the centuries, in 1618 the interior was remodelled in Baroque style, and later decorations by Bibbiena were added in 1720.
The beautiful frescoes, treasured in the apse and in the bell tower, are the only surviving works of the Giotto school, the famous so-called thirteenth-century Rimini school, influence by Giotto, who visited Rimini in the early 1300s
The frescoes came to light following the earthquake of 1916. It is a complex of frescoes that evoke scenes from the life of the Saint and the Last Judgment attributable to the Master of the school Giovanni da Rimini. This last fresco (owned by the Diocese of Rimini), restored and detached from the attic, was initially placed in the Arengo room, then moved to the city museum (Via L. Tonini). From 2020 it thas emporarily found its place back in the Arengo hall of Rimini Municipality, in one of the most prestigious spaces of what is the new museum of modern and contemporary art,  PART - Palazzi dell'Arte Rimini.
