The Church and monastery of St Augustine was built by a group of 12 Augustinian friar way back in 1572 as they arrived in the city of Goa on 3rd September 1572. Though the church was constructed almost 30 years, later the Convent was started with an aim of further consolidation.

The church and monastery were both abandoned in the year 1835 after the orders of the then Portuguese Government of banning religious orders. The church was neglected for long time and its vaults collapsed in the year 1842. Even the beautifully carved facade gave way in 1931. The bell tower sans the bell (which was moved first to the Fort Aguada Light House and then to the Church of Our Lady of Immaculate Conception) still presents a picture of the glorious past of the monument.
