Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A great visit to the famous sword and stone. This made for a great quick trip in the morning to see the famous sword and stone, and when we finished taking photos we took a quick 10 minute walk next door to the famous Abbazia di San Galgano which was also beautiful!

This was a fun little stop and it is right next to the Abby of San Galgano, so it's a nice little road trip. It IS out in the middle of nowhere on a windy road, well outside of Chiusdino so be prepared for that ahead of time. The sword in the stone story is really cool and it was a nice side trip while visiting Siena.

this seems to be where the legend of King Arthur and the round table got the idea for a sword within a stone. It's a very unique little place near Chiusdino and well worth a visit. We went with rental ebikes because the surrounding landscape is a bit hilly. There is also a little souvenir shop with a grumpy tenant.

The spartan chapel, the simple and true piousness it emanates, the wonderful frescos by Lorenzetti, and finally the sword in the stone by San Galgano are of great inspiration to every soul who visits this place.

Arthur allegedly pulled Excalibur from a stone in the 5th century, long before Ermo Rotonda di Montesiepi was constructed, in 1185AD. This is the purported site of San Galgano’s death, in 1181. The Rotonda chapel was restored in 1924 and retains the peculiar medieval shape not normal for the time. Did some “Kilroy was here” Crusader plant an Excalibur replica in the crevice of a stone to honor England’s mythical king?

The church is not very big but the sword in the stone is fascinating. The round construction and brick decoration is pretty neat too. There's a cafe nearby.

All the legends about this sword are very impressive. Although I must say that they should change the plastic glass over the sword because at the moment you see mostly scratches and glares instead of the sword itself. Not telling about trying to take a picture of it... Despite this disappointment, all the rest is beautiful.

Obviously where the tale of the sword in the stone arose. Very quiet and serene church. Worth a walk around the abbey and in the woods before hand. Dan Brown should visit some time as definitely a feel of the Knights Templar here
