The Basilica di San Domenico (also called the Basilica Cateriniana San Domenico) is a mendicant church in Siena. It is dedicated to the founder of the Dominican Order, but also closely connected with the worship of St. Catherine of Siena. The designation as "basilica" does not refer to the type of building, but to the ecclesiastical rank of a basilica minor awarded to it in 1927.
