Abbey of San Galgano

recommendation by oriana

According to legend, Galgano Guidotti, born in Chiusdino in 1148 to a noble family, led a dissolute life dedicated to pleasure and entertainment until the Archangel Michael appeared to him and he converted to Christianity. To symbolize his abandonment of his life as a knight, Galgano plunged his sword into a rock, leaving the cross-like hilt visible.
