The San Agustin de la Isleta Mission was originally built in 1612. After being   destroyed several times, it was re-built in 1710 and undergone a major remodel in 1923. Work on the mission continues to this day, but the historical character and appearance of the structure has remained the same.  It is a popular tourist destination and continues to serve the people of the area.
