  • Visiting San Galgano Abbey is a must visit this shrine, which enshrines "the sword in the stone" according to tradition stuck on top of the Hill by cavalier Galgano, symbolizing his act of conversion to follow the path of faith. Council to get there from the path that starts from the left side of the Abbey, is a little bumpy but it takes 15 minutes.

  • fantastic proof that "the sword in the rock" exists. Perhaps the legend is not just a legend,
  • Suggestive, the sword is behind a glass that it's not well cleaned. Parking is free and next to the Eremo
  • A stop here at San Galgano always results time well spent!
  • This the place where the sword still sticks in a stone. Maybe the origin of King Arthur's sword tale.
  • The round or Montesiepi's Hermitage was built just after the death of the Saint over the ancient hut where St. Galgano spent the last year of his life. The Hermitage was consecrated in 1185 by Volterra's Bishop Ildebrando Pannocchieschi with the imprimatur of Pope Lucius III. The small complex consists of the Church with a circular plan interrupted only by the small apse, the chapel with frescoes by Lorenzetti and entrance Pronaos. The cover is made from a beautiful semi-spherical dome colour bands alternate. There is a story that links San Galgano, Hermitage of Montesiepi and the Holy Grail. Inside the Shrine, in the center of the Rotunda, there is the famous sword of Saint Galgano for over 800 years into the rock. Maybe in some underground irranggiungibile in 1200 was here hid the Holy Grail and San Galgano still defends him. Legend has it that down to this underground is necessary to move, as in most, classic Indiana Jones film, a stone ... but still nobody discovered it. Hermitage of Montesiepi is open every day from 9.00 until dusk with free entrance. Every Sunday morning at 11.30 there is the Holy Mass.
