Overview

This was the house where St. Catherine of Siena actually lived. She was born as Catherine Benincasa in the building, although the space around it was not originally part of the property; that has been acquired with the rise in popular devotion to her memory. The sanctuary dates from 1464 and is dedicated more to meditation and contemplation than its artistic qualities. It has undergone restoration in the past that has altered its original appearance.
