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.

I was hoping to see some rooms in which she lived or artifacts from her lifetime. Rather, there was a chapel with some frescos of her life, a bookstore selling magnets and such and a "museum" that had essentially chachkies. I learned little to nothing...More
