  • Resting place of my Patron Saint, St Augustine. You will find Augustinian Monks here. There is a little plaque that tells you the original spot where his remains were found, this can be found on the right hand side as you enter the church. Definitely look to visit this church to pray at the resting place of a Doctor of the Catholic Church.
  • The relics of St. Augustine are here. It's a lovely church.
