Bevagna is a small town with only 5.024 citizens in the province of Perugia, Umbria.
Once known for its fine canvas produced here and so famous that they were given the name ‘Bevagne’. Bevagna is situated in one of the most beautiful villages in Italy. Roman municipality (Mevania) experienced prosperity during the imperial era. Roman remains (the theatre, baths with exquisite mosaics, the remains of a temple from the second century d.c. and a Roman Domus) and charming medieval architecture combine to make a pleasant visit to this town centre.
Among the most important monuments are; ‘Palazzo dei Consoli’ from 1270, which nowadays is used by the theatre ‘Torti’, ‘Piazza Silvestri’, one of the most important Medieval squares in the region. Here you can visit the church ‘San Michele”, which was built in the end of the 12th century, and the church ‘Sam Silvestro’ finished in 1195. In the town museum paintings from the Umbrian school of painting and excellent sculptures can be seen.
Every year, for the ten last days in June, Bevagna becomes a Medieval village for the town festival called ‘Gaite’, the old name for the neighborhood, with street markets, parades, competitions and traditional cooking where old recipes are used and served in ‘Taverne’, typical small taverns. All is relived with the citizens dressed in splendid time period costumes in a joyous and relaxed familiarity.
