St Catherine is a parish in the south east of Jamaica.

It includes the first capital of Jamaica, Spanish Town, originally known as San Jago de la Vega or Santiago de la Vega .Geography and PeopleSt Catherine is located at. It is bordered by St Andrew in the east, Clarendon in the west, and by St Mary and St Ann in the north. It has an area of 1,192 km², making it one of Jamaica's largest parishes and it is one of the fastest growing parishes in the nation and has the largest economy out of all fourteen parishes. Except for the Hellshire Hills near the coast, the south of the parish is virtually flat.

The Rio Cobre is the only river that runs along the southern plain.
