Santa Caterina d'Alessandria is a Gothic-style, Roman Catholic church in Pisa, region of Tuscany, Italy.HistoryIt is mentioned for the first time in 1211, then associated with a hospital. The current edifice was built between 1251 and 1300, commissioned by Saint Dominic himself, and entrusted to the friars of his order.The façade (completed in 1326) has a pointed shape with white and grey marble, with, in the upper section, two order of small Gothic loggias and a central rose window. The interior, after a fire in 1651, is on a single large hall. Renovated in the 18th century, it houses works by Lippo Memmi (Triumph of St Thomas, 1363), Fra Bartolomeo (Madonna with Sts Peter and Paul, 1511), Santi di Tito, Aurelio Lomi (Martyrdom of St Catherine), Raffaello Vanni, Pietro Dandini (all 16th-17th centuries) and marble sculptures by Andrea Pisano (Tomb of Archbishop Simone Saltarelli, 1343) and his son Nino Pisano ("Annunciation", 1368).

  • A short walk from Piazza dei Miracoli in Piazza Santa Caterina, to be visited absolutely for the beautiful stained glass windows

  • A place of great spirituality, perhaps precisely because it is bare of so many frills and therefore invites recollection. Imposing the organ almost hidden, despite the size, basically, in front of the left cap. It's the second time I've been back because for me it was "love at first sight." A very special place. There is no shortage of works of art (glass, sarcophag, canvases). I was surprised to see, under the benches in the cap where the Holy one is present, many burial slabs that act as the floor. I'll be back again!
