Walking through Bevagna means plunging into the distant past. It means discovering, hidden in the medieval city, the remains of the Roman city. It means finding yourself in a timeless atmosphere, in the middle of the typical Umbrian landscape, where past and present coexist beautifully.
The itinerary winds through the historic center of the city and includes a visit to
Church of San Francesco, on the highest point of the city, perhaps the ancient acropolis, houses the stone on which, according to legend, the Saint preached to the birds.
Church of Santa Maria della neve (exterior), one of the rare Roman temples transformed into a church in Umbria
Palazzo dei Consoli (exterior) from the end of the 13th century, currently houses the Torti Theater.
Church of San Silvestro from 1195, an authentic Umbrian Romanesque jewel.
Church of San Michele Arcangelo slightly later than the church of San Silvestro and built by the same architects.
Church of SS. Domenico e Giacomo (exterior) built at the end of the 13th century on an oratory donated by the Municipality to Blessed Giacomo Bianconi.
The itinerary can be covered in about 2 hours (it is possible to adapt the visit time to the needs of the group).
