  • Wonderful Abbey shortly after the year 1000. The name reminds us that at the time of its founding and for at least another century the monastery and the village were surrounded by the water of a lake that covered the whole plain to the slopes of the hill on which Monteriggioni is located. The lake was then drained and the area reclaimed by the monks of the abbey so that they could transform the land into cultivable. For this operation between the municipality of Siena and the abbot there was a dispute then decided in favor of the abbot: Siena was not interested in the reclamation, indeed wanted to keep the area impracticable and difficult because it constituted a natural obstacle to the Florentines.

  • Beautiful and charming place! Very old Romanesque church with adjoining Gallery and hostel for pilgrims on the Via Francigena. It exudes a mystical atmosphere. Beautiful panoramas.
