Siena Things to Do: 485 reviews and 1,010 photos
Devotees (and tourists, like me) of Siena's most famous saint head not just to Chiesa di San Domenico (see tip above), but also to the nearby Casa di Sta Caterina, which is the birthplace of Siena's patron saint, who at age eight, was believed to have received visions and devoted herself to God.
One doesn't have to be a devotee of St Catherine to admire the beautiful frescoes inside the Church of Crucifixion inside the compound - and if you're lucky, and a Catholic - hear mass with beautiful music in such sacred surroundings (goosebumps!).
