“The Shrine of Saint Catherine occupies the site of Catherine's family home, where she was born in 1347 and where she lived her austere early life as a Dominican affiliate. The house has been much adapted; it is now a series of chapels dedicated to the beloved saint. The monumental marble well in the courtyard dates to the 15th or 16th century.” (Shrine of St. Catherine, Sacred Destinations)

Things are so old it is hard to wrap you mind around it.
Still beautiful.
