Originally an Etruscan-Oscan settlement and later a Roman municipium called Mevania, it reached its peak during the Middle Ages. The town retains the charm of medieval streets and the magnificent square embracing the main sights.
In addition to charming Romanesque and Gothic Churches, the town features interesting Roman ruins such as the theatre and the pavement of the Roman baths with a mosaic representing sea animals.
In Bevagna is possible to visit traditional workshops producing handicrafts according to ancient Medieval techniques. There is also the possibility to visit a Museum showing the everyday life and habits of the Middle Ages.
