The Diocesan Museum of Menorca is located in the quarters of the former San Agustín convent in Ciutadella. The convent was left uninhabited after Mendizábal’s disentailment laws of 1835, and then came to be owned by the state. The building once again became the property of the bishopric of Menorca in 1858, which used it for the Diocesan Seminary. Until 1619, the primitive San Agustín convent was located in the port, but in that year it was moved to its current location. The Baroque-style convent building was built between the 17th and 18th centuries. Noteworthy features include the semicircular arches and the Nuestra Señora del Socorro church, in a pure Herrerian style. It was inspired by San Felipe el Real in Madrid, which is also from the Augustine order and was built in the same period. The inside of the church was decorated with frescoes in the early 19th century. It also boasts a magnificent Baroque organ built by Josep Casas i Soler in 1794.
