  • In Siena is a must visit the House-santuario de Santa Caterina, which is reached through the porch of the municipalities. There is the Oratory of the stigmata, where houses the Crucifix of the stigmata. Tradition has it that this Church had been built on the garden of the House of Catherine; the crucifix is of 12th century Pisan school. Where was situated the kitchen of the Benincasa family, there is the "kitchen", the first boardroom meeting of "caterinati", the spiritual children of Saint Catherine. It is said that Catherine fell into raptures over the hearth (where today is located the altar), remained miraculously unharmed. There you will see the Fontebranda, a beautiful medieval source.

  • If it weren't for the character's importance, the visit could also avoid. deserve the frescoes in the "kitchen"

  • From the Duomo or Campo heading towards San Domenico, go down to visit the House of Catherine, patron saint of Italy. If you do not find the Group on duty, the place is pervaded by silence donated by distance from Center to Center and nature in itself. Cloisters, chapels, the nearby Fontebranda. An oasis of tranquility in the chaotic mass tourism that assails the city
