St Catherine chapel (Orneto)

St. Catherine of Alexandria-Santa Catalina- has a sanctuary in Ornetu. This is a very old chapel. A document found on site, fixed the date of the consecration of the place in 1755. In the niche to the left of the altar there is a statue of the saint to be carried in procession. There is also a wheel, referring to the torture she suffered. The painting above the altar, is the mystic marriage of the saint. It shows the child Jesus putting a ring on her finger. Sainte Catherine (died in 310 and is celebrated on November 25th) carries a palm attribute to martyrdom. Source: Destination Cap Corse
