Church of St Dominic

Interesting
St Catherine lived not far from here. This convent church was therefore the ideal place to have her ecstasies and quickly return home before the powerful and harsh setting could put her off. In the chapel "delle volte", above the altar, is the only authentic portrait of Catherine by Andrea Vanni. In the chapel dedicated to her is the tabernacle where her head is preserved and frescoes by Sodoma depicting episodes from her life.
