Bevagna is a town in the province of Perugia in Umbria, once known for the fine paintings that were produced there, so much so that they are called "bevagne". It is included among the most beautiful villages in Italy. Roman town hall (Mevania) experienced prosperity during the imperial era. Roman vestiges (the theatre, the thermal baths with valuable mosaics, the remains of a 2nd century A.D. temple and a Roman Domus) and suggestive medieval architecture contribute to make a visit to this urban centre pleasant. Among the most important monuments are the Palazzo dei Consoli, dating back to 1270, which currently houses the Teatro Torti; Piazza Silvestri which is one of the most important medieval squares in the region and overlooks the Church of San Michele, built towards the end of the 12th century and the Church of San Silvestro completed in 1195.
In the municipal museum there are paintings from the Umbrian school and valuable sculptures.
Every year, in the last decade of the month of June, Bevagna returns to being the ancient medieval town. The Mercato delle Gaite (the old name of the city districts) proposes parades, competitions and the elaboration of recipes of the traditional cuisine in the classic "Taverne"; everything relives in the suggestion of the period costumes that the citizens dress with festive and casual custom.
