Wedding in San Galgano Abbey

Abbey of San Galgano is one of the most suggestive, spiritual and romantic places to get married in Italy. An experience that you and your guests will always remember, because the atmosphere in the Abbey is incredibly special.

The Abbey is located about 30km south west of Siena (in the town of Chiusdino) on flat ground surrounded by low hills and it is possible to celebrate civil legal wedding inside the abbey.
Its most spectacular characteristic is the fact that it’s missing its roof, which makes it a fabulous setting for an open air civil ceremony in Tuscany. If you plan your wedding in Italy, you must consider adding this location to your list.
The Abbey was built in the 12th century by the some monks to honour Galgano Guidotti, known as Saint Galgano. Once a knight in the army of a local medieval warlord in Siena decided to leave the army to start his life as a recluse, embracing a life of spiritual meaning. After less than 100 years the abbey was looted. For centuries the monks continued their life at the abbey until 1786 when the roof collapsed. Today you can hire the Abbey of San Galgano for your wedding, the most mystical and majestic place you can find in the whole of Italy.
Most people choose to get married in the main part of the abbey, under the beautiful blue skies and shimmering Tuscan sun. For many couples it is a gorgeous dream come true.
