St. Augustine's Church is used today as town library, was built at the end of the 15th century by for devotion to Saint Sebastian, whomiraculously saved the town from the plague.
With the arrival in Taormina of the Augustinian monks the little church lost the ancient name to St. Augustine.
The wood roof is made with trusses. Each side is decorated by four niches with false arcs and columns in Corinthian style.
Originally the church was in late gothic Sicilian style, but it suffered radical transformations around the 18th century, when the lancet arc of the main portal was replaced by a lintel in stone from Taormina.
