BEVAGNA

Bevagna is one of the most beautiful historic villages of Italy but its origins goes back to Etruscan age. The first sure indication is however in the roman chronology that quotes the battle of Menana of the 308 b.C.
New development arrived with the construction of the via Flaminia that passes here and became the main decumano of the city (street from W to E).
Bevagna rises to the margins of the Foligno's plain, on the slopes of gentle hills cultivated with olive trees not far away from Montefalco.

The city immediately declares its medieval aspect in the doors of the town-walls crowned by towers and with its churches dating back to the end of XII century: Saint Michele Arcangelo and San Silvestro. Nice Mosaics, belonged to some thermal buildings, remain to testimony of a more ancient past, a roman theatre of the II sec. a.D. as well as the rests of a Roman temple. Piazza Silvestri is a rare example of condensation and synthesis of the powers, represented here through some buildings of rare fascination: Palazzo dei Consoli (1270) representative of the town council, the two churches already reported above and the church of Saint Domenico of the XIII sec. for the religious power.
