The Medieval Festival in Bevagna – Virtual Walking Tour

Step into the past from the comfort of your own home with our exclusive virtual walking tour of the Mercato delle Gaite festival in the enchanting medieval town of Bevagna. This immersive online experience transports you to the heart of Umbria during one of its most vibrant and historically rich festivals. Witness the town as it transforms back in time to the 14th century, with every detail meticulously recreated to offer a truly authentic experience.

Our expert guide Patrizia will introduce you to the origins of the festival, celebrating Bevagna’s medieval heritage. Each “Gaita,” or district, of the town revives ancient crafts and daily life from the 14th century, offering a rare glimpse into medieval times.

You’ll explore the bustling market scenes that are the heart of the festival: artisans in period attire will demonstrate ancient crafts like paper-making, blacksmithing, and silk weaving. You’ll virtually wander through the picturesque streets and squares, beautifully adorned with medieval banners and decorations, creating a festive atmosphere.

Join us for a memorable adventure through history at the Mercato delle Gaite, where every corner turned is a page from the past waiting to be rediscovered.
