“A moment of tranquility”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

A real surprise away from the busy narrow streets of Siena. Amazing view of the Tuscan landscape and a beautiful small chapel hidden off the side of the courtyard.

“Home of St. Catherine”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

The Hotel Alma Domus where we were staying was right next to this house of St. Catherine. So wonderful to get a glimpse of what life was like for this great saint. There is a tiny chapel and rooms to see as well as a gift shop with many books about St. Catherine all with no admission cost.

“The church is beautiful”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

Absolutely a beautiful church and to learn about st Catherine of Siena is very interesting. They don't want pictures taken I learned after taking two of them which will be memories for ever.
It is a must see. We were here on July 14th and I'm so glad we took the tour.
You must have a tour guide to really appreciate the country.

“Tranquil and Serene”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

Well worth a detour to get a feel of peace in the the arched entrance, even if Murals of the passages of St Catherine's life are not your thing enjoy the peace and tranquility

“Tranquil setting”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

The Casa di santa Caterina is set in a quiet cloister with a small chapel. There is no entry charge but if you want to use the toilet facilities it will cost you €1.
