The Abbey of San Galgano by Sharene Hanlon

“With the day having beautiful blue skies, we set out to find the Abbey of San Galgano. After stopping in a few towns and then stopping by a local Italian bar and receiving the correct location, we found it! In 1789, lightening struck the bell tower which collapsed onto the roof of the Abbey and the church was deconsecrated. What a stunning structure even without a roof.”
