But I wanted more information about where St. Catherine lived etc. Was her home still visible? Yet a very moving place with art and meaning.

When I first visited Siena four years ago and saw the head of Saint Catherine, I had to know more about this woman! As a Protestant, I do not have muck knowledge of Roman Catholic saints and nor do I completely understand the concept of relics. However, St. Catherine's story is compelling! Read up on her and this site will... More

It's a church that for not religious people it's a normal church but it's not. When you see the front you'll notice that there is no door and it even has a gate. The way is complicated so I suggest you to buy a map it doesn't cost any thing but I suggest that just catholic people who are praying.... More

Santa Caterina's house is a very quiet place. It has a big church with lots of magnificent paintings. Even from outside it looks very historical with columns and elegant finishes. In the church there are lots of flags of all the contrada's (different flags that represent different teams of horse riding.) There is also a souvenir shop were you can... More

When I went to santa Caterina I thought it was really quiet. It is still very beautiful because it is made of marble. There is a statue of santa Caterina she is holding a cross in her right hand and an olive branch in her left hand. It looks like a small school with underground classrooms. Santa Caterina is near...

Very lovely chapel, and very tranquil grounds. Be sure to check hours of operation. Parts of it were closed. If you have limited time in Siena, you may decide to pass on this sight since it takes some time to walk here and its hours are limited
