The Royal Monastery of St. Augustine combines Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque elements in its architecture. Its historical importance lies in its being the first convent in the city of Burgos (ninth century).

It was built as a place of retreat and worship for Augustinian monks, a religious order dedicated to the contemplative life and service to the community.

For several centuries this monastery was a place of pilgrimage, as inside it was the image of the Christ of Burgos, which today is in the Cathedral of Burgos.

Currently, the Royal Monastery of St. Augustine is used by the Provincial Council of Burgos to serve as the Archive of the Council and function as an exhibition hall.
