There is also a modern cellar full of graves. The thing that most caught our attention were the electric lights at the graves...

    city center from san miniato

    of course san miniato is a must see 'cause of the fabulous view and all, but if you're there around 5 pm you'll be able to hear the monks chanting. Just be very respectable while they're chanting.
