Photographer's Note

San Galgano's hermitage on the hill called Montesiepi. The small round chapel of Montesiepi preserves the sword in the stone that San Galgano plunged into a rock to have an altar to pray at.
The inside of the domed roof is constructed with 24 concentric circles of alternating white stone and terracotta - a different and very beautiful small "neo-Etruscan" space. The church also preserves a series a frescos by the Sienese painter Ambrogio Lorenzetti.
