    St Catherine's Passage

    Catherine's Alley, formerly known as Monk's Alley, winds its way from Vene Street past the southern end of the Dominican monastery to Müürivahe Street. St Catherine's church, which lent the alley its name, is thought to have been built more than 700 years ago. The southern side of the alley is lined with predominantly 15th-17th century buildings. The alley as a whole retains its medieval charm and was last restored in 1995. A number of handicraft workshops can be found here, in which you can watch the artists at work such as creating ceramics, hats, glass, and more.

    • A nice medieval passage

      tripadvisor rating 4 of 5

      It’s a typical pedestrian path with cobblestones from the Middle Ages. It’s called St. Catherine because it’s located on the remains of a part of St. Catherine's monastery. We couldn’t find it easily... Read more comments

      This is one of our favorite places in Old Town Tallinn. It's quiet and has quaint shops and cool tombstones from centuries ago. It's not easy to find this passage - just keep looking!

    • Nothing to see!!

      I was surprised that there was actually nothing to see. A couple of arches and a closed courtyard. Skip going out of your way to see this and take in other areas.
