Touring San Galgano Abbey
It has the typical Cistercian plan based on a latin cross with three aisles, rich in carved capitals and rose windows, with a cloister, halls and atypically, a bell tower.
The richeness of San Galgano Abbey and its good relationship with Siena attracted the incursions of the Florentine armies which, together with other political events, resulted in the rapid decline of the abbey beginning in the first half of the XV century.
It is historically and architecturally one of the most important religious monuments in the Sienese countryside and, together with the nearby chapel at Monte Siepi.
Is an important expression of the gothic Cistercian style in Italy represented by the Fossanova Abbey in Latium.
The abbey's is named after Galgano Guidotti.
A XII Century knight who finally came to understand the importance of being a good Christian after having first experienced every kind of naughtiness.
Similar to St Francis, Galgano renounced his wordly life,though in this case he became a hermit.
One day he didn't have a cross in front of which to pray, so he took his sword and miraculously planted it into a rock; the shape of the handle, with the shaft mostly hidden, created a cross.
San Galgano Abbey wheelchair accessible tours you can find that stone and sword in the small, rounded chapel on the hill next to the abbey, Galgano's hermitage.
