Church of San Augustine and Queretaro Art Museum
Church and Monastery of San Augustine

These structures from the first half of 18th century, exemplify neo-Hispanic baroque.

The church's three section front displays the fine and venerated sculpture Christ of Portal, and six saints in their niches.

The unfinished tower and cupola dedicated to Mary, also contain sculptures.

The amazing quadrangular cloister has a richly carved fountain in the middle, bordered by lavishly ornamented arches that lead to spacious galleries, containing peculiar figures and elements that appear to be engaged in symbolic dialog.

Since 1988, this complex houses Queretaro Art Museum that has magnificent collection of art from Viceroy period.
