THE SWORD IN THE STONE

A LEGEND THAT COMES TRUE IN THE ABBEY OF SAN GALGANO

The St. Galgano abbey is a Cistercian/Trappist monastery, and it goes back to the XII century. It’s located near the village of Chiusdino, in Siena province. This holy site is also famous for having the “Sword in the Rock”. This sword in the stone was placed in 1180 by Galgano Guidotti on Montesiepi’s Hermitage.
Along with the Abbey there is also remarkable Dome. It’s formed by sectors of white stones that alternate with sectors of red bricks. It recalls the Roman-Etruscan graves of Cerveteri or Vetulonia.
