Beautiful Bevagna

On Tuesday, we returned to Bevagna for a morning tour with Maura. We began at the beautiful church of San Silvestro on the main piazza. This simple church has a number of steps up to the alter with three arched windows.

There are four "neighborhoods in Bevagna, each with their own ancient medieval craft workshop. These are called the 4 Gaites of the city: Paper craft, religious art, candlemaking and silk thread production. These tours were all fascinating (more later).

We had lunch at Osteria del Podesta. All the salads and spicy pastas were good, but Gary and I especially enjoyed the coniglio with porchetta!

Bevagna looks like a real gem! I wanted to go there when I was in Umbria but could not figure out the bus schedule from Spello. Thanks for this post and the photos. It makes me think more about maybe renting a car someday if I ever get back to Umbria.
