The area
Neighbourhood: Vatican / Borgo
Frocked priests, colorful Swiss Guards, insistent souvenir shop owners, flag-waving tour guides, and pilgrims from around the world. This is the Vatican and Borgo, Rome's most recognized neighbourhood which acts as Vatican City's front yard. Aside from the souvenir boutiques and a few food spots, the only business conducted here is papal. In the daytime, the tiny medieval sector bustles with holy activity, as visitors vie for elbow room, or stand in line for a visit. Once the sun sets, the neighbourhood is transformed into a quiet and picturesque hamlet.

This statue is probably easily overlooked. It is off to a corner of the park surrounding Castel Sant'Angelo, and can be seen from the street just before entering the Via della Conciliazione that approaches St. Peter's Basilica. Saint Catherine is one of my personal patrons, and I love how this statue captures movement and deep emotion. It really is marvelous!

It’s a monument next to the Castello Sant'angelo. It represents Saint Caterina and it’s one of the 3 statues of this saint that are found in Italy ( the most famous is in Siena). ~3,5/5⭐️

Marble statue
Oct 2018 • Family
The white marble statue of St Catherine of Siena stands in Piazza Pia in the gardens of Castel Sant' Angelo. A beautiful statue, it shows the saint in movement, with her bending down in an act of charity.

ST. CATHERINE – PATRON SAINT OF ITALY
Mar 2018 • Couples
Located in Parco Adriano, close to the Castel Sant’Angelo it is rather unassuming, sitting just off Luntotevere Castello. The monument consists of a statuary likeness of St. Catherine and 4 panels in relief. Patron Saint of the US and Italy

Nice Monument
Jun 2017 • Couples
Statua di Santa Caterina is a lovely monument to a deserving human being. It is located practically next to Castel Sant Angelo, in Piazza Pia. It is easy to miss, especially if you are in a hurry, but if you take your time and look a bit more cautiously, then there it is, in front of you, very lovely and humble. Worth a look.

Stop for a moment to view the wonderful tribute to Saint Catherine near Castle Sant'Angelo.
Oct 2016 • Couples
Heading back towards St Peter’s Square we passed the beautiful statue of St Catherine of Siena. This striking statue, located in the magnificent gardens of the Castle Sant’Angelo was sculpted entirely out of white marble. With her head bent, she is wrapped in a long plain cloth that gives her a humble and charitable appearance. Four base reliefs depict scenes from her life. The monument was designed in 1961 by Francesco Messina, creator of the famous Dying Horse in the Viale Mazzini. Catherine’s beautiful, plaintive face is the first thing you see on the way to the Castel Sant’Angelo and the last thing we saw as we left. A wonderful memory to take with me.

SAINT CATHERINE
Apr 2017 • Couples
Located in the southwest corner of Parco Adriano, at the corner of Piazza Pia and Lungtotevere Castello this statue and monument of Saint Catherine can be missed if you are looking at the other sights. The monument consists of a statue of Saint Catherine and 4 sculpted relief panels. She is a patroness of Italy and the United States.

Small (by Rome's standard) but nice
Apr 2016 • Family
The monument is by no means the most impressive one in Rome, especially keeping in mind that one encounters it either after Ponte Sant'Angelo of after Vatican. That said, when you see it, take a look and make up your opinion.

Nice monument to St. Catherine of Sienna near Castel Sant'Angelo
Mar 2015 • Couples
A nice thing to see near Castel Sant'Angelo is the marble monument to St. Catherine of Siena found in the grassy area of Piazza Pia. This is worth having a quick look-see if you intend to visit the castle and/or have interest in the historical figure of St. Catherine. The monument was cleverly sculpted by Francesco Messina (1961) depicting St. Catherine, fatigued as she preserves in her call to God as she seemingly emerges out of an unfinished block of white marble. It is a creative sculpture and thought provoking image that is enjoyable to see. Next to the monument of St. Catherine of Sienna, there are four additional marble panels with scenes, perhaps from the life of St. Catherine although we are not entire sure. Note: If you are approaching from the direction of St. Peter's Basilica, you will see the grassy area of Piazza Pia just to the left as you near Castel Sant'Angelo. If you are visiting from the Pont Sant'Angelo, you'll need to walk to your left a bit before the monument comes into full sight.
