Tuscany, Italy is home to the mysterious Abbazia Di San Galgano ruins. The site includes a roofless cathedral and a round hermitage built in the medieval period. Built in mid-1220s, the Abbazia Di San Galgano is an example of a Cistercian chapel mainly built for usage than for display of grandiosity. Nonetheless, the Gothic arches of Abbazia di San Galgano never fail to impress visitors who come to see and experience the mystery of the place. The Abbazia Di San Galgano was built by Galgano Guidotti. He was a young Tuscan knight who had a vision of the Archangel Michael leading him to Montesiepi where he was met by the Apostles and the Virgin Mary, who instructed him to build a round-shaped chapel in an isolated place. At first, the young knight found the feat impossible and proclaimed that if driving his sword into a stone is possible, then he can also achieve what he was being ask to do. At the same time, he struck the stone with his sword and drove it easily into it that he immediately accepted becoming a hermit. It is said that the Abbazia di San Galgano's better days were short-lived and that the place gradually fell into ruins.
