Abbazia Di San Galgano - Review
The majestic ruins of Abbey of San Galgano were found in the valley of the river Merse. It was built by the Cistercian monks and was dedicated to St. Galganus. This 13th century abbey was built in the gothic style and was once a wealthy, thriving church that was later left to ruins until recent restorations. The abbey declined in the 16th century due to a long period of corruption. As of now, an empty shell remains of what was once a beautiful church.

Abbazia Di San Galgano, Siena Reviews
The Legend of Excalibur is true in Galgano! Visiting the Abbey is worth it. There's so much history and the story of conversion and of faith. You've got to be there and see for yourself this massive roofless church and the still embedded sword of St. Galgano. Don't miss the arms/bones of the thief insode the circular church on top of the hill. He tried to steal the sword and was attacked by the wolves who are friends and guardians of the saint.
Romantic place, historic setting. Nearby restaurant serves excellent food. Very reasonable prices
Really cool place, nice to visit. A lot of people have wedding here, but you can only have a ceremony. Would be amazing if they would allow the whole wedding reception there as well.
Well worth a visit! Hauntingly beautiful shell of a once magnificent church.
Not much to do here I don't think, we came here for a wedding ceremony and it was lovely despite it raining. The ceiling (where it still exists) , despite looking like solid stone doesn't completely shield you from the rain. It still feels a bit like spitting.
