The restoration project of the former convent of San Agustín in Talavera de la Reina (Toledo) took place between 2001 and 2004, and was sponsored by Caja Madrid Foundation together with the City Council of Talavera de la Reina and the Ceramic Museum Ruiz de Luna. The main purpose of these works is, on the one hand, preserving and restoring this church from the 17th century – in a state of semiruins and used as a high-school, market and workshops during the 19th century – and on the other hand, giving the building a respectable function, acoording to its historical value. Its spaces and rooms have helped to expand the museological facilities of the Museum “Ruiz de Luna”, recovering the lost architectonical unit between the convent and the church. The project has paid special attention to the use of traditional constructive techniques, such as the construction of domes, light roofs and elegant vault roofs (with hurdles for the structural connections), to the recovery of paintings and wall coverings (encaustic), and, considering the situation of the building, to refurbish the surroundings. During these works, several dissemination activities took place – such as visits or open-door events – in the building in order to make it better known and appreciated by the neighbours, and to build its future maintenance.
