A relaxing look into the life of Santa Caterina at her chapel. It's in a bit of an out of the way place. Try to time your visit when the bells here and other churches around ring their bells. A wonderful Italy sound!

We enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere of the Casa di Santa Caterina. It was very informative and honouring to Santa Caterina as well as to God. I would recommend visiting this place.

St. Catherine of Siena is one of the patron saints of Italy and this space dedicated to her memory is well worth a visit. It is a quiet serene space in the midst of the bustling city of Siena.

It was Sunday and many people went to visit the church and the monastery. Whole place is particular, with wall-paintings illustrating the life of S. Caterina di Siena.

A beautiful little collection of chapels in different styles- used to be the home of St Catherine of Siena in the 1300's. Just make sure to check the opening times as it is closed for a couple of hours in the afternoon for the nuns...More

Nice small-ish church with an impressive interior. It was not too crowded when I was there and worth seeing if you have some more time at hand in Siena.

This was a very interesting church to visit as St. Catherine is the patron saint of Siena. This church is built upon her original house. You can still see the kitchen fireplace and the crucifix that she prayed to. It was fascinating to me to...More

Another place we came across when heading elsewhere from our hotel. There was a service taking place so we did not get to see right inside the chapel, but there was still enough to see to make the visit very worthwhile. Certainly worth a visit...More
