Mercato delle Gaite

The Mercato delle Gaite is one of the most important historical events in Umbria, where the daily life of the inhabitants of the town in the Middle Ages is rebuilt with a wealth of detail and maximum attention to historical loyalty.

It is a unique experience, for one night, the main square of Bevagna turns into the open-air hall of a medieval castle.

For ten days, in June, in Bevagna the ancient shops of medieval crafts reopen, the streets are populated with figures in period clothes that relive the daily life of their ancestors eating and working as their own ancestors.
