The monumental church of St Augustine, although originating in the 13th century, is today in its 16th-century reconstruction. The imposing bulk can already be appreciated from the three portals leading to the wide Renaissance-style nave, marked by twelve richly inlaid altars. There is also an apse and a chapel remodelled in the 18th century. It is a true picture gallery due to the quantity and importance of the works housed there, including paintings by Ridolfi, Ceccarini, Guerrieri, van Chayck, Barocci (workshop), Presutti, Tedeschi, Tiarini and others. There is also a 15th-century polychrome sandstone pietà, a 16th-century Magistrate's bench, and a richly carved wooden choir and sacristy. As part of the 'School adopts a monument' project, the Chapel of St Nicholas, part of the church, is entrusted to the care of Mondolfo's Moretti Primary School.
