Saint Martin friezeOur tour begins at the base of the Grand Staircase, where visitors to Old Main first encounter this marble frieze. The work depicts Saint Martin of Tours dismounted from his cavalry horse in the act of splitting his cloak to share with a beggar. Saint Martin lived a life of humility and compassion and is the patron of the Abbey and the University.
