St. Augustine’s Church is one of the churches built during the creation of the Valletta New Town in Malta. It was built in 1571 AD and rebuilt in 1765. It was promoted to a parish church in 1968. Some of the artworks in the church are the originals of the early church. One of them is an important 16th-century painting by Augustin Nicholas in Tolentino, painted by the famous artist Mattia Preti. In the first chapel on the left, there is a painting depicting Augustine John born in Sahagun, Spain in 1430. Below it is a small oil painting of "Our Elegant Lady", without date and the author's signature. This church building is included in the National List of Cultural Property of the Maltese Islands. During World War II, the area of St. Augustine’s Church was densely populated and was bombed by planes. Air-raid shelters were built under the church. Oil paintings of the bombed rooms were also displayed in the church.
