This is a joint post, which means that you can experience this visit out of another pair of eyes. We certainly didn’t come to San Galgano Abbey for the doors but we left with some, as one does.
You might have heard it already: a bit over a month ago Doormaster himself paid a visit to his Italian branch office. He made sure that the doors are behaving and that everything is in order, and then left again.
In four and a half days we did our rounds and Norm and his lovely wife seemed quite pleased with the itinerary, weather, food, bestia, amore and me. And the doors, of course. It was entirely mutual.
Today we decided to do a joint Thursday Doors post, but without cheating in from of a preview. This probably means that you will get a bunch of the same doors, since the location in question is nothing but a shell of a building with not many doors left standing.
But what a building! This is the Abbey of San Galgano near Chiusdino. We found it by chance with my parents a few years ago and this was only my second visit. I’m sure that Norm will tell you more about its history, but if not, tough luck. Since over here I’ll let the photos do almost all the talking. Take it away, Abbey.
(ADD-IT: See the man in action!)
