Sain't Galgano's Abbey

Sain't Galgano's Abbey

The building made up of the Hermitage (also called Montesiepi’s Round) and of the ruins of the big St. Galgano’s Cistercian Abbey, is one of the most enchanting views in Tuscany. 


Views as enchanting as this can be found near and far. 

In Montesiepi’s Round you can find St. Galgano’s Sword in the stone.

Montesiepi’s Round was built between 1182 and 1185, over the hut on the hill where St. Galgano lived during his last year and right there where he had placed his Sword in the stone. 


At the beginning it was the tomb of the Saint, who had been buried north of the Sword, so that he could “see” Chiusdino through the entrance door.
