I suppose the church is called the home of St. Catherine because she's still there - at least her head is! Mummified and encased for the faithful or the curious to see. It certainly makes an impression.

If what you are looking for is beauty and art you will not find it here, but if you are a religeous person then it may be worth it TI go to this building.

Not really a house left. Rather, a quiet place built where her house probably stood. Quiet must be observed. Good for pilgrims to offer a few prayers. Expect a courtyard, a couple of small chapels, and St. Catherine's original convent cell.

Must go to see the chapel. A small piece of Renaissance Rome in back street Siena! Very peaceful and lovely
