On the recent trip to Tuscany we discovered San Galgano Abbey, which is for me one of the most beautiful monuments I have ever seen. The mysterious atmosphere of the place and the enigma of noble man Galgano Guidotti who renounced a life of “arrogance, lust and violence” to become a hermit after seeing a vision of the Archangel Michael really made a big impression on me.
The site is made up of two major attractions: the gothic roofless cathedral and the unusually shaped monastery of Montesiepi, and ancient hermitage, which hosts the tomb of San Galgano and the sword in the stone.
Volovja reber is situated on the edge of Snežnik plateau from where you can even see Julian Alps and Dolomites. Vast plains with enormous number of different animal species, some of them even endangered. It really is a true hidden gem of Slovenia . Destroying it would be a mistake and a great loss for all of us.
