The Church of San Agustin is also called Santa Maria la Real. The church was constructed in the 17th century by the Bishop Juan Beltran de Figueroa. The façade of the church is made of white marble and has the Classic style. It is composed of fluted columns on a podium and has a niche with a statue of San Agustín. On the upper part there is a coat of arms of Badajoz and another coat of arms of Bishop Agustín Antolinez. Inside the church there is one large nave and on each side there is a lateral nave that contains the chapels. The presbytery has a polygonal apse. The choir is situated at the bottom of the church and the big central nave is covered by a barrel and a ribbed vault. The high retable dating from 1818 is dominated by an image of the Virgin with Jesus dating from the 16th century, such as the oil paintings of Antonio Lucenqui from the same period that ornaments the lateral naves. Beautiful busts can be found in the presbytery, such as the one of Marqués de Bay. Other distinguished nobles of the city have been buried there since the 16th century, and their tombstones as well as their coat of arms are kept, such as the ones of Don Diego Suarez de Figueroa and Fernan Gomez de Solís, who was the first Duke of Badajoz.
