... Catheriniana DI S. Domrnico. this church is called a Basilica because it has Saint Catherine of Siena's bones buried underneath the alter. her skull is preserved in the church which we were able to see. we were not allowed to take pictures but i can vividly remember. one of her fingers was also preserved.
