Abbey of San Galgano

www.tuscanmuse.com-san-galgano-abbeyThis is a 13th-century church whose construction began around 1220. It took nearly 60 years to complete the project. The abbey was supported by the Republic of Siena for nearly 100 years but was ransacked by mercenaries in 1363. In 1786 the bell tower fell in, taking with it the roof of the church. Despite being in ruins, the shell of the church is magnificent to behold and is situated among a beautiful forest.

  • Our stay at Le Casacce will always be a glorious memory. By the time the trip was over, we already missed our new friend, Linda. We came home filled with tales of the sights we had seen, the excellent food we had eaten and the good times made possible by Tuscan Muse
