History

Santa Caterina was founded in the 11th century, but was given to Augustinian nuns at the end of the 13th century. After being rebuilt in the 15th century, both the convent and church were suppressed by Napoleon in 1807 and reopened as a school. The church sustained damage during World War One and as a result of a later fire, causing the roof to be rebuilt in the popular ship's keel style.
