Dopo la visita dell'abbazia di San Galgano siamo saliti per in breve sentiero per arrivare in questo eremo dove narra la storia che un cavaliere conficcó la sua spada nella fessura di una roccia come ... more »After the visit of the Abbey of San Galgano hopped for in short path to get to this Hermitage where tells the story that a Knight conficcó his sword into the crack of a rock as a symbol to leave his former life is enjoyable even this visit. Some say that here was born the idea for the Disney film the sword in the stone I like to think it's the truth

L'eremo di Montesiepi è un piccolissimo complesso risalente all'XI secolo, all'interno del quale c'è la spada nella roccia, cioè la spada che un giovane cavaliere scagliò, in ripudio alla violenza, su... more »Hermitage of Montesiepi is a small complex dating back to the 11th century, inside which there is the sword in the stone, i.e. the sword that a young Knight hurled, in repudiation of violence, on a rock, leaving it tucked almost to the hilt, forming a cross. If you are lovers of these legends then it is worth visiting the place (who has access and free parking just below the entrance), otherwise you may be disappointed with the bare walls of the Church and by the sword itself. In addition there is to visit the Abbey of San Galgano, a few meters from here.

Molto bello, storico ed unica la spada nella roccia, per quello sarebbe da 5 su 5. La spada, capisco il doverla preservare dai turisti maleducati che la toccano o addirittura tentano di estrarla, ma u... more »Very nice, historian and only the sword in the stone, for that would be 5 on 5. The sword, I understand the need to preserve by rude tourists that they touch it or even try to remove it, but a shrine so Matt does not allow pictures or to see her well. I also find the gift shop and the Lady inside very out of place and a little sour.
This the place where the sword still sticks in a stone. Maybe the origin of King Arthur's sword tale.
Francesco MarchettiA must visit in this place began the Hermitage of San Galgano Guidotti, young Knight of nearby Siena, who decided to put an end to a life of violence by planting his sword in a rock and venerating in it the Mystic cross of Passion. The structure combines different types of architectural and artistic territory. Beautiful, magical.
Valter BaccaroTo visit only for the sword in the stone and the beautiful dome. Magnificent landscape. Road uphill
Barbara BenassaiFrom here it seems the legend of the sword in the stone but was Plumb bisti welded wisely attempts to remove it in time from visitors. 😁
Lucchese FabrizioThe Italian version of "the sword in the stone" ... seriously, the site of the conversion of Saint Galgano. Interesting Interior, beautiful views of Chiusdino.
